this is possibly the most raw thing I have ever written about burning man: I am what I am; in short; every single living being on this planet is a nutter. We all think and feel with raw emotions suppressed and pushed into the boundaries of a society we did not make, and most of us don't fit. As a people we fight and kill over stupid inane things like religion and skin color. We subjugate the minds of children teaching them that you must put away your imagination; your soul to fit into this broken thing. For a short time every year I get to escape that entirely, live in a place where I can express to my greatest extent, sometimes I come home and realize that was not what I wanted, sometimes I come home realizing that that was just silly fun; and on special occasions I come home knowing that I helped to open the minds eye of other adults to the fact that they can be whom ever they want to be as long as it does not harm another human being physically or emotionally. If that means my outward expression looks to the world like a nutter... so be it, because to me this farce we live in is the real whack job.
