Hi everyone! :D
First time Burner here from beautiful Nelson, BC, Canada.
This is a very last minute decision...my partner & I ended our relationship on Saturday at about 5am (on a good note, we're still best friends). I've wanted to come to BM for years, but I didn't want to exclude my lover from such an experience.
On Sunday morning, I woke up knowing that this is it. This is the year I will finally make it to Black Rock City. A funny thing to wake up knowing, when I hadn't given the smallest consideration to going to this year's event until that very moment. But I guess, this is how it goes...you just wake up one morning and know you're ready for it.
So a little bit about myself...Born and raised in the lovely Kootenay mountain range, I'm a backwoods Canadian girl with a love of hula/fire-hooping, music, dancing, nude beaches, burlesque and...well, any experience where I don't have to worry about what time or day it is.
I work with Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo BC...I've been in love with that festival for 6 years, and was lucky enough to find a niche doing work I enjoy with people I adore & admire. From now until mid-August, I've got a lot on my plate, but I'm looking forward to the journey to Black Rock City two weeks later to...well...I don't know. Experience & participate, I guess!
It's a strange thing, being completely free, for the first time in a long time. I can't wait to explore that feeling at Burning Man!
