30 Days of Burning Man – Day 27, Three questions
This year there is a possibility that there will be a much higher percentage of newbies heading to the desert so I thought I’d spend the 30 days before the gates open throwing out some information, some images and a little bit of wisdom, advice and snark about the place I love so much. These posts will be generally directed at Burning Man virgins but hopefully some of you old dogs out there will contribute through comments or get some enjoyment out of them as well. So here we go. . I’ll include at least one photo from Burning Man each day and once a week I’ll do nothing but photos. I hope the posts are sometimes helpful and also enjoyable, enjoy ~ ZD Blue
It’s getting close to leaving time now for those who are dust bound this year, so for tonight’s post I asked a few “old timers” and even one person who has only done regional burns. I asked them the following questions:
One piece of advice
One reason to go
One reason to stay home
From a friend I camped with at 4th and J:
mmmm…. 1. free your mind and your ass will follow. 2. being in a momentary city of 65,000 or so people who are all intentionally shaping reality will blow yer fucken mind. 3. because you are an utter chickenshit idiot.
From a friend who literally hypnotized me:
1. One piece of advice: Regionals 2: Reason to go: Acceptance by other Burners 3: Reason not to go: Your true friends will accept you anyway, even if they happen to be Burners.
From an old dog
1. pay attention to the direction of the sun. 2. It’s a place to be more relaxed than any other place you’ll ever be. 3. If you’re in a relationship with problems don’t go, the playa is a magnifier.
Veteran Burners, feel free to chime in with your own answers. ~ ZD Blue
