This ant really a reply to what has been said previously, but I think it fits the subject of being happy at the Burn. AS far as I'm concerned this should be a very natural acurance. There are a lot of folks( even at Burning Man) who seem to take the negativity of the outside world in with them. Why?! Burning man is a place to have hope and a realazation that we can look at the whole planet this way. I know that this is very difficult at times in this period of war and over zealos patriotism and segragation. But let's try to believe we can change all that shit.
Last year was my first burn and I mentioned something that I believe angered some people. I told them that Burning Man and Disneyland were my to favorite places. Let me explain, I understand that many people look at Disney anything as so corporate, it has no soul. Now i can understand this, but stop and think about the real reasons the place was built. It was built so any one could return to that place of imagination inside and not feel guilty about it. Therefore do not close your mind to any expearince,and realize all is of God!!!
