70,000 lucky people get to go to Burning Man every year.
It means different things to different people.
This year, Burning Man for me was all about community and self-care.
But I digress.
I say it was all about community because I spent a lot of time around camp due to the extreme heat.
I didn’t want to fry and dehydrate out in the desert sun.
So I really got to know my camp mates, especially since we had a communal area that was heavily utilized by all.
My burn was also about self-care.
About knowing what was good for me and what was bad and choosing to act in accordance with what was right for me.
I showered when I needed to shower. I slept when I needed to sleep. I flirted when I wanted to flirt. And I hugged other people to excess.
So here are some of my favorite photos from Burning Man which are special to me not because they feature the amazing art of Burning Man, but because they feature some of my favorite people out there on the playa.
