Hello, I am Strange Bird

Post by strange bird » Sat Jul 26, 2014 6:52 pm

I am a Burning Man virgin, still without a ticket but continuing to work hard towards getting one. I am going as I love the arts and love to create. I am also intrigued by the potential intensity of elements and how thousands can get together and overcome them while still being creative and having a ball. It's an "in your face, Maslow!" kinda thing. I love it! Anyway I really hope I get there as this will be a one time event in which both my daughters and and good friends are there. Me and the friends are all a little over the hill so we may be pushing it but the hell with all those fears, we are going! Hope to meet as many of you as possible. You must all be extraordinary and great people.

Hey there, welcome to eplaya!
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

My friends' blog on how they've been enjoying Burning Man for years, specifically focused on topics for those >50 years old.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.
