2800km of driving or 14 hours of straight driving
10 days gone
3 dust storms
1 week of preparation
And this is our third burn.
These are the ingredients that we started to undertake at the beginning of August, collecting a little here an a little there and culminating in a frenzy of excitement in the days leading up. This is a place where, as creatives, we get a creative recharge. There’s nowhere better to have your reality turned upside down an inside out as you emerge from your hot steam bath and are enjoying a snow cone as a caravan of teapot camels rolls by. Or attending a wedding where ornate leather coats are gifted along with the rocket packs to bring the couple’s previous long distance relationship that much closer.
The unique experiences of shedding your previous identity and embracing the inner one that’s been there since you were a kid; a wizard, an alien or a tutu wearing unicorn. All of these unique and beautiful people are stirred, mixed and whisked together in a head mixture of expansive art and meaningful interactions with each other where one might ask which planet are they from or where they could also get a unicorn horn.
The ability to temporarily step away from a monetary economy and into a gifting economy gives glimpses of what wonderful talents people excitedly offer to each other in this pop up city. Identity workshops, pancake breakfasts and reikei work are just a sampler of the potpourri of talents offered. This is where everyone is their best and brightest. The warmth and generosity from these beings is amazing and we continue to be infused with it year after year.
As we clean, wash and put back our head dresses, yurt and bicycles, the warmth of the desert and people are still glowing in our minds and we look to next year.
Happy Friday, folks. For those who are taking the Monday off, have a super long Canada Day weekend!
