In every lifetime, I will find you. Who will you find in every lifetime? This is the last photo I took at Burning Man this year. You probably won't believe me, but I had a transcendent vision of this four nights prior, two days before I even discovered this place. If I were to try to describe either what I saw or how I was in a state to envision it, you would probably think I am crazy. But I told my roommates the next morning what I saw, and then I emailed them this photo a few days later and they were like HOLY CRAP. If I ever meet you in person, I can try to describe the whole experience. I'm not sure I can, but I know it was real.
Here is Kate Swarm, one of the yoga teachers at the camp. This year she brought her 9 and 10 year old. That's a great age to bring kids out here... I think in eight years of going, I never have seen a teenager (14-20 or so). I've always kind of wondered why that is... but I think that age is such a crazy time for the ego to develop that most are embarrassed and overly consumed with what everyone else is thinking about them (hey, it's the same way with a lot of adults... see Instagram). Anyway, Kate here is wearing this awesome mask (like a one-way mirror where you can only see out) that was made by my friend at CrypticNine.
