Before sharing my story, I want to thank the Burner community for triggering and being part of some of the most powerful and beautiful transformations in both my boyfriend and I's lives independently, as well as in our relationship.
We went to our first burn a few years ago. The amount of love, kindness and generosity shown by everyone was a powerful testament to us about how to live our lives. At that time, we also decided it would be a dream of ours to go to Burning Man someday, and started making changes in our own lives so that we too can live a life of love and display that to everyone around us, including those in the "default world."
We had no intention of going to Burning Man this year because my boyfriend's career was not in the position for him to take that time off. However, he was just offered a severance package, and of instead of him being worried about his future employment, he immediately shared with me "This is it. This is our year to go to Burning Man. I will have the time, and we aren't promised any other year because we don't know where we will be in our lives and careers. We are going to find a way to go." Attending Burning Man this year will be our Celebration of Transformation.
With that said, we are very very passionate about going this year. We also know there is one more sale of 1,000 tickets in August, but I want to do my part and try and help us get them sooner.
If we can purchase tickets and attend, we promise to give that same love, kindness and generosity that was given to us at our first burn.
Much love and gratitude to every single one of you. Looking forward to meeting you on the Playa!
