It’s IMPOSSIBLE for me to contemplate Burning Man expectations without thinking of the prophetic words of my Fearless Leader Twisty.
He told me it’s best to just let things evolve on the playa and not try to plan too much.
Did I listen to him?
Not the first year, I didn’t.
I had a WHOLE SCHEDULE filled with plans and activities I wanted to participate in.
Very few actually materialized.
I got to go to the temple and write my messages on the walls.
I went to Scotchfest solo.
And I got washed at the Human Carasss Wash.
That’s about it.
Most of the time I was lonely looking for friends to do stuff with.
My second year was better. I was scheduled to bake cookies for playa interactivity.
Everything else was UP IN THE AIR.
And I had a great time although I do feel like I should’ve done more exploring, less staying at home relaxing in the Motorbeast.
This year, I have a few things on my short list of THINGS TO DO:
Go to Transfoamation and dance in the foam.
Attend Scotchfest. With friends.
Watch the Rite of Spring.
Go to the wedding of my Fearless Leaders.
Short list, eh?
Should be something I can accomplish.
