I spent the past two weeks preparing for, attending and
decompressing from Burning Man. I've written many times about this epic art/music/nature festival of
creativity, innovation, spirituality and community.
If you haven’t spent an hour with me personally hearing me rave, read
this article from the Huffington Post for a great description of what Burning Man is
I’ve made the journey to Burning Man five times and never had a better time than this year. My compatriots in Barbarella Boot Camp were the most fun, hilarious, inquisitive, competent, sexy, open, chill, easy and amazing people you’d ever want to spend a week with. Especially an intense week of 100 degree heat, dust storms, raging parties and roller coaster emotions. I consider Barbarella Boot Camp to be my new Burning Man home, and I can’t wait to build it again.
Choosing the best shots from a year at Burning Man is always hard, but here are a few of this year’s great moments, with notes. As any burner will tell you, the next man burns in 356 days.
Ready to roll!
This year's theme was "Evolution." Which couldn't happen without you-know-who.
An amazing sculpture made of nothing but locks and keys.
Killer view from the top of the giant astroturf slide.
Down we go.
Take out art car. If only they delivered.
This year's Temple ... the most spiritual spot at Burning Man.
Children will play.
Erika and me at a White Party. She was my virginal Burning Man date in 2007. Obviously she's got it down now.
Rubik's Cube on the Playa. Even more amazing at night when lit.
Just a little head dress. This is how creative Burning Man is.
Some of my amazing camp mates at Barbarella Boot Camp. Hookers all.
The one thing Burning Man needs more of: Urban Soul.
Me and my faithful ride.
Let's go fly a kite. Sunset and sunrise are the most spectacular moments by far.
