(list after cut)

and, YAY! David Best and crew are making a temple!.

His temples, the way people contribute to them, and their burning are the most impressive art experience I've ever seen/felt.

Truly changed my sense of what art can be.

In years past, my Grandpa sent things to the playa with me to be burned in the temples. This year will be a particular poignant one for me.
