Burning Man Photo Diary

Well, it’s been a whole week since I arrived back from Burning Man and as the crisp fall weather officially starts to settle in I’m really starting to miss the dry heat of Black Rock City. I don’t think there’s any way I could accurately describe the event – an art festival, a counter culture congregation, a giant disco rave in the middle of the desert – all of those describe small facets of the enormity of Burning Man. The real trouble with putting words to my experience is that, well I’d be doing just that – putting words to my own experience. Every person there went to the desert with their own agenda and, to me, the essence of Burning Man is the acceptance of/ working toward every person’s unique burn.

I met some incredible people there, listened to many wonderful stories, and came back a different (and I think better) human being. So I hope with the small bunch of pictures I took, I can convey even an ounce of the greatness that is Burning Man.

Goodbye August & Burning Man Update

It seems that this will be my last post for August because for the next week I shall be romping around with friends in Black Rock City at Burning Man! I spent all of today working on my last burner preps and when I finally, finally finished (literally five minutes ago) I figured a short update post was in order before I set off for the desert.

I have a couple of posts planned for when I return – specifically an August favorites list and a small breakfast recipe. My hope is by having posts planned I won’t be discouraged by my absence and will be able to get right back into the swing of things.

So, with that, I hope everyone has a lovely first week of September, here are some pictures of what I worked on all day today (crayon flower gifts for Burning Man), and I’ll meet back up with you later!
