If I’d Been At Burning Man …

Burning Man Black Rock City Nevada

Burning Man Black Rock City Nevada

Today, Labor Day marks the Day After the finale at the Burning Man festival where the gigantic MAN is torched and tens of thousands of participants return from where they came. This year the Burning Man theme is The American Dream.  The different art exhibits, known as ‘theme camps’, which ideally are interactive will somehow associate with this changing annual theme. Also, the street names in this temporary city coincide by somehow following the theme of the year. The one week long festival was started in San Francisco in 1986 then moved to the stark, almost uninhabitable Black Rock Desert of Nevada in the year 1990. Burning Man celebrates art, creative expression, involvement with others, music, unity among human beings, and a long standing tradition of general fun.

It is said this festivity is not for the faint of heart, those who can not entertain themselves, have troubles getting along with others, or do not function in a crowd. From the Videos I have watched, and stories I have read about Burning Man it would be a good idea to do extensive research before throwing yourself into Burning Man so you can be prepared. If you are a litterbug do NOT go. You must be self-sufficient, environmentally contientious and bring what you need to survive for this week. In other words, be self sufficient.

This extravaganza is a more of a one of a kind experience to enrich yourself, leave your material world behind and take yourself to a new enlightenment. Have you ever really wanted to … let yourself go? But can not seem to do it all the way because the requirements of daily life are holding you back? Maybe Burning Man IS something you can do to find a new path.

Of course I have always wanted to attend this event, but over the years seem to have made more excuses … than Carter’s got pills. You know the usual, parenting, work calling, obligations … that sort of thing. So, this year once again as Labor Day Holiday returns and I study the 2008 Burning Man online.

This morning I sit in awe, watching video after video of folks there having fun. The couple who were married as they jumped out of a plane and para sailed down to their motor home at Burning Man just about made me cry. How awesome is that!

There was a Burning Man Video Post Card station which must have been set up in the main area. After watching several we came upon a fella whose video displayed him whining with grief. His depressing online vid clip went on as he cried about how sad he was that he was there and his other half was not and how he had been crying the entire time after he left. He grieved that he was missing his GF, or was it his Mom, (not sure). This was really a shame! Honest, how could this be possible? He was there, IN Burning Man and making himself miserable. *Sigh*

Well, from Bakersfield we imagine how the week would have gone … if we’d been at Burning Man 2008. Maybe next year we will make it to Burning Man 2009 where the theme is going to be Evolution.
