i'll be in the desert for the next week or so, so if you need to reach me, too bad. i'm blissfully, blissfully unreachable. i even mailed my computer halfway across the country, just in case i got some sort of weird urge to try and bring it along.
everybody has a different reason for burning man, and they're all good, but here's mine: there's little better in this world that a whole week away with a bunch of people you care about, where it's too damn hot to do anything besides hang out in the shade talking during the day, then too damn dark to do anything but run around dancing all night. try that on for a couple days and you'll feel way more human than during any ol' 9-5 work week. and if you happen to be surrounded by desert and sky and insanely beautiful art projects and brightly costumed people and the occasional underdressed individual and a couple of other things you don't quite have the words to adequately describe, well then, so much the better.
