I was questioning my instincts the whole of last year because it seemed like I wasn't having fun like others. Cultural differences were staring at my face and it seemed like it would be wise thing to adapt. This year's burn was simply great because it helped me understand the basic fact that I am where I need to be, even if I can't seem to belong.
Imagine one of us wandering around a festival in India, delightfully confused. Sometimes that culture shock can be delicious.
I'd love to try it!!
