Imagine a community that accepts you wholly and completely. Or one that is a magical, whimsical world full of art and performance. Or maybe a place that you can find music 24 hours a day and people are begging you to come and join in on the fun. That place… is Flipside (our regional Burning Man event). It was almost a religious experience for me, and I’m not sure I could do it justice putting it into words.
Let’s just say that it nourished my soul and single-handedly made me jump back onto that Over Yonderlust horse after it was done. I had been inspired.
More than anything, it helped me let go of all the negativity that had been following us…
BY BURNING IT TO THE GROUND.
Both literally and metaphorically, I watched the embers turn to ashes.
I was new.
