Back to Burning Man

For the second year in a row I was excited to return to the harsh and uncomfortable, but beautiful Black Rock desert. Burning Man is many things to many people, but my synopsis is that it is a celebration of creativity, freedom, acceptance and instant community. 70,000 former strangers come together for one week and get along despite any real government or law enforcement (exceptions do exist). Thousands of volunteers work year round to make this happen, then in late August, the hottest part of the summer, like Brigadoon, this magical otherworld manifests in the dry ancient lake bed that is the Black Rock desert, and LIVE. Google it, many people have spent more time writing better things about it, but just know, I will go back every time I can.

The Man


Fire Dancer in Love- this man did his whole performance while gazing this beautifully at his fiancé. After his dance, he apologized for setting his hair on fire on their wedding day.
