In Penis And In Soup
I am back from Burning Flipside, and I am moved and shaken and changed
by it. I think I shall never be the same. I connected powerfully to
something beautiful and magical. I loved what I saw and felt, and all
the brothers and sisters and beautiful freaks I met, especially my
friends in FlipSeattle Camp, who will always be dear in my hearts.
I desperately want to attend Burning Man. I need to plug in to the
source, and feel the energy of my tribe flowing through my veins.
I did not take notes while I was there -- reporting is too much a
'spectator' activity, and I had to be there, in the thick of things,
not sitting on the sidelines and writing. I'm going to try to piece
together my experiences over the next day or so and post them here.
Until then, here's a list of nifty things I've brought back, in
addition to the warm afterglow inside me:
A Burn 2001 Flash headscarf with the rising sun on it
A weird CD by a group called Manaburn
A FlipSeattle t-shirt (thanks June!)
a candy bracelet given to me the night of the Burn. Its rapidly
decaying, but I can't throw it away.
a smiley bowtie from Ded Keg
WE ARE WINNING!
I'm gonna take a shower and decompress a while. Current Mood: blissful, exhausted, inspired
