The Mountain Goat is born.....

Postby Mountain~Goat » Thu Sep 13, 2012 2:21 pm

Hey all, name is Hayden or Spre(t)z, or Mountain-Goat. whatever you wanna call me as long as its whatever you want to call me....

not exactly sure what to say or where to begin...
this year was my first burn and I can safely say I will not be missing another burn as long as the universe permits it.
got my name Mountain Goat from a ground level burner watching me climb up to the top of the structure underneath The Man to snap a photo.
i rock climb for a living so my friends all thought it was not only hilarious but appropriate. Thus Spretz the Mountain Goat was born.
after that everything started familiarizing within minutes. the expectations and insecurity started melting away.
I didnt understand at first why everyone came up and gave me a warm "welcome home" until after my first night.
i woke up the next morning ready to sponge it all in. and i did.
I made some extremely rad friends and saw some of the most beautiful artwork and people i have ever seen. NON STOP for 8 days
slept like a baby every night(that i actually slept) andwith an ass crack full of playa dust and miles of blinking lights and thumping music to boot.
In fact, I slept better on the Playa than i have in 4 or 5 years anywhere else. and with lil to no comparative accommodations.

Never have i felt so comfortable doing anything in my life as life at burning man.... and especially around mostly complete strangers! gallivanting around in my underwear, seeing naked people, WEARING MY HAIR DOWN(oh man was that freeing), showering out in the open, sharing stories and food and drink with neighbors and passer-by's, shitting in scorching porters with funny graffiti, DANCING, (holy hell i had no idea i could boogie so hard!) SMILING, biking for miles at a time.... the list goes on. and all of these things i feel now are or were milestones in not only my growth as an individual, but my understanding of community and functionality. once i stopped worrying about myself and realized that i am just as unimportant as anything or anyone else. I BECAME IMPORTANT. i dont know if that last thought makes any sense. but fuck it sounded cool in my head.

CANNOT WAIT TO GET BACK OUT NEXT YEAR AND BE AT HOME AGAIN, EXPANDING MY FAMILY AND MIND.

A few of my friends and I have some awesome plans for next year, cant wait to see all of your beautiful faces again.

dreaming of Playa sunrises.....
