[quote="Syntonia"]Wonder sticky Playa clay or dust...wonder itchy sleep or slumber well..wonder...many drunken invasive fondling or careful respect...wonder...too loud noise alldaynight or peaceful moments too...wonder...trash piling or earth honoring people...will it assault my senses or stimulate them? Will you be my kin or tromping horses? Will I lose protective layers or gain them? Will I gain joy and hope or fear of carnivores? BM never been so I wonder....Tell me, elders...[/quote]
Fire emits little color and makes no noise; its fuel determines what colors and sounds the viewer experiences as one observes the flame.
If the playa is dry it is dusty. If it is wet it is unbelievably sticky. Bring earplugs as sound is abundant and unhindered by geography or construct. Expect peace but don't expect to know in what form you will find it. It will likely find you.
There are earth-trashers in the process of education among the earth-worshippers, but mostly worshippers. How do you know your kin are not tromping horses? You may be a tromping horse yourself, simply in need of an unfenced meadow.
Your protective layers are your own to build or shed as you desire. The only protective layers you'll need are sunscreen/glasses during the day, a coat during the night, and the simple ability to bail out of a situation if it becomes uncomfortable. The situations you get yourself into are your own to explore or reject.
There is profound, overwhelming joy. There are also carnivores; watch for rattlesnakes if you stop along the highway, and bring your own food.
And if'nit starts to get you down, come visit Zaphod and have a cup of root beer and a side of psychobabble.
