Burning Heart

(no subject)

"When there's nothing else left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire"


That's what Burning Man was to me.


Just had to post that after hearing it on the radio last night, starting off some song. I'd been trying to capture how I felt about Burning Man, before and after, about the "fires of transformation," and this was damn perfect. I think it should be the "official slogan";o)

hello,
I am finally at a point in my life where going to burning man is an option.
and I will go in 2009. burning man or bust.

Ive talked to people who've gone as well as read a bunch of things on eplaya and in here.
it seems to me that going for my first time it would be very helpful to join some kind of camp.
I have all intentions of contributing to the camp and not just showing up to take advantages of their resources.

but - how do you decide which camp to join? I know theres an lj camp, and a camp for another group i'm involved in (couchsurfing.com) - but Ive also seen/heard about several others that sound amazing and look interesting.

for your first burns did you stay with a camp? how did you decide to join that one over the million others?
thanks.
