Free Library

I have been having a vision of me sitting at Center Camp Burning Man and reading Orwell's 1984 . I thought it would be fitting reading material for that place. So I brought it with me and also Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Well.....I did not read much. Too many other things to do and see. Distractions everywhere! I did skim through 1984 and from what I gathered I don't care for it too much but I will still give it a shot and read it since it is a classic.

And in case you decide that you really need to read at Burning Man but did not bring a book with you, do not despair! They have a free library there. Of course! Take a lollipop or two also.

Speaking of books, let me tell you a few of the activities listed in the Burning Man What Where When 2016 edition.

Friendship Ceremonies - bring a friend to celebrate your friendship.
Sunset Friendship Weddings - celebrate the love you have for your friends and take a vow.
Early Morning Yoga - start (or end) your day with the sun.

Relaxing Foot Wash - bring your dusty feet and smile.
Pussy Day Spa - enjoy champagne, a refreshing body wash, custom pubic hair styling and a pussy massage.

Best Butt Olympiad - do you have the finest ass in all the land?

Funnel Cake Party - fresh hot funnel cakes, drinks and dancing in a shaded geodesic dome.
Nobel Prize Winners Lectures - the ideas that redefined what we know about the world.
Burt The Yeti Story Hour - come and listen to tales from a far away land. Burt the Yeti reads a selection of Nordic Folk tales and Children's stories.
The UN's Agenda 2030 & Sustainable Development - explore ways to be a local and global citizen.
Let Them Eat Cock - bring a cup and enjoy the fabulous golden showers of Marie Antoinette. (This one is brought by my friends Sarah Jane ( and Eliza. :-)

And that was only a scratch on the surface of what Burning Man has to offer.
No wonder I had no time for reading!

Da Vinci's Workshop

Burning Man 2016....this year's theme was Da Vinci's Workshop. I arrived to Black Rock City, accompanied by my brother Robert on Monday August 29 and stayed there for one week, leaving Monday September 5. After it is all said and done and over it really goes by in a blink of an eye and you it really over already? And I always want to go back for more.
Since this was my fourth Burning Man in a row I can say that I have established a bit of a routine. I need my latte at Center Camp when I wake up. I really enjoy sitting there with my breakfast, people watching, listening, relaxing and breathing with my bare feet covered in fine Playa dust. Black Rock City Center Camp lattes are the best!
First latte pic at Center Camp 2016 and the Burning Man What Where When book to find out what is going on at the Playa. So much is going on that you will miss out on majority of it, so just go with the flow and take it in as it comes.....

Pretty Center Camp.

And when the sun goes down the Playa lights up. The Man is out there in the middle glowing orange.
