I was hoping to bring him with me to burning man next year. This year was my first burn. I told him tales of the playa, and he was pretty excited about seeing it for himself.
I know this is probably not the place to air my personal tragedies, but I have made a connection with a few of you, and I know there are a lot of big hearts out there. I don't really know why I'm posting this here. The Eplaya has become an extension of the Burning Man experience for me. I've never felt more a part of a community than when I was on the playa.
I realize that I'm fishing, and I probably sound sort of pathetic right now (not to mention the fact that I'm a rambing idiot at the moment) But any kind words would be most welcome.
