El Pulpo Mechanico. This amazing creature has a website, go visit http://www.elpulpomecanico.com. He is just lovely and so fiery he makes my heart melt (when I am not excitedly howling at his fire explosions). This guy was one of the biggest draws to burning man for me.
"Stands of Chime"
Hung out here for hours, in the shade. Watching things and people move, fly, ride by. Had a snack. Listened to chiming. Listened to thoroughly loud chiming. Meditated. Was joined by a new friend. Greeted and welcomed by a birthday party. Offered to ride a scooter. Took photos. It was a very happening place one day in the pm around sunset.

At Burning Man friendships are made and strengthened.
I didn’t see why relationships get tested at bm specifically. Sure, you are tired or hungry or thirsty. Sure, there is plenty of eye candy and temptation. But really, if your relationship is good then those things are not going to break you apart. On the other hand, finding lovely connections on the playa, that’s definitely possible.
If we look at creative thinking as the act of coming up with new ideas (new to the thinker, not necessarily to the world at large), what’s the best way to teach that ability? Is it something you can even teach?
The best possible answer – which I’m going to touch on a lot this year on…
The man. Burning Man 2014
He’s THE Man, enough said. He had a wonderful collection of souks around him that represented different countries. You could even learn how to read in Russian.
"LOVE" by Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg. Burning Man 2014
All we need is love. I think that love is something that makes us glow. It makes us kinder. It makes us happier. I am talking about love in general, love for fellow human beings. Burning Man felt like home to me because I am already caring and giving. For the first time, people stopped questioning that about me.
Temple of Grace, Black Rock City 2014.
It was a treat to see the temple still being built upon arriving to BRC. The intricate detail and beautifully cut wood made the temple glow at night and made for an exquisite view during the burn.The first night it was open, visitors came in to experience the light, healing, letting go, community, to leave a note, to leave a message to their loved one, to share, to feel… I left a few things there, as a token of a new beginning and even before the temple burned I felt a change.
