am drunk, but dreaming... of home.

Post by Bexx » Sat May 28, 2011 2:34 am

It is now 2:30 pacific time. I am high on some rum and have been watching movies non-stop on my netflix instant. That in itself has nothing to do with the burn... What does have to do with it - is I've been using a lotion (the science of scent @ BM) the past couple of days.. and it has literally TAKEN ME HOME. - Right now - It is as if I am in my tent.. i've just come back from riding my bike and am getting ready to pass out. I AM THERE.


I am having deep memories of being on shrooms and taking a 3am bike ride around my "neighborhood" - I am having memories of last year being my first burn, and me, out on a bike ride.. coming back to my camp... and being caught in a storm.. standing in front of the man... by myself. I was scared for a brief moment. Then I realized... this is me, at an epic moment in my life.

It stumps me to this day - how something can have made me lose all touch with reality - yet make me feel whole.

For years I'd had friends that told me I needed to be there.. that I belonged.. it shocked me - at how well my friends knew me.. for they were so right.

This year I am bringing my Husband and my Best Friend. - Both whom I know need to be there. I can't wait to get home.

You're bringing your husband and your best friend; the three of you must really be party animals!

How is the Fox as a venue? I know the exterior is gorgeous, and I'm glad they seem to have found the money for restoration and I hope it continues to have a long and useful life and brings some good stuff into that part of Oakland, but how is it as a venue?

Oh fishy, it was Art Deco Heaven. It was beautimuss! Art Deco is a favorite of mine! I took a few pics before my batteries died.

Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Sorry we hijacked your thread Bexx! That song just came to mind. Hopefully youve gained enough inspiration, to bring back to the real world.

Thanks for sharing your story and memories Bexx. It's nice to see yet another someone that has been so profoundly affected (infected?) by that thing in the desert.

Last year was also my first round and was one of the most soul stirring and life changing events I've experienced in many a year. Never felt so comfortable, genuinely happy and connected to my fellow human. I know that sounds a bit cheesy, but it's all true. Can't wait for round two as I leap head first into the cheese....

Yeah, about that, grai, that exploding head thing is a lot of trouble for the dpw crews doing clean up. So, I'm asking that you wear a plastic bag over your head, so that when it does explode, the mess doesn't go everywhere.

This year will be my fifth burn. I am more excited this year than I was on my virgin burn!!!

Missing the smell that only the playa has, my friends, and the assorted jackassery...

Soon, we shall be home!

Love Rice

If it's any consolation, I had to run to google to find out what you meant.
