Last week I wrote about a magical place I‘ve been lucky enough to visit four times. One of my favorite cities that is only created for a week filled with art, serendipity and lots of love.
“There’s a magical place that I’ve been beckoned too and fortunate enough to visit almost a handful of times. It’s magical, mesmerizing, energizing and inspiring. It’s one of the most incredible places I’ve been and most hostile environments for humans. A place where amazing folks come together to create and allow their imaginations run wild, where creative energies become magnified and encouraged. A place where you can truly be who you are. A place where you can feel so alone or fueled up on love from people you just met. A place that people spend all year planning and creating for a week of partaking in the act of self-reliance, community building, connecting with souls of all walks of life and be surrounded by brilliant and often, interactive art.
In honor of Flashback Photo Friday and the power of photos to describe a place here is a mini glimpse of playa life in photos. In a week’s time I nearly snapped 1000 images and you can find plenty awe-inspiring images (and get lost in time here)
A few night shots… one of my favorite times on the playa
A few more…
It’s the week-long festival of practicing radical self-reliance, community building and lots of art.
It’s Burning Man.
Have you been? Intrigued?
Do you think you could handle the heat and the dust storms for a week?
