Festivals. Seeing all of the #burningman
pictures come up in my feed had me contemplating festivals. I’ve been to my fair share over the years (this photo is from my first #coachella
). Funny thing is, despite hearing amazing stories and seeing phenomenal footage and photos from Burning Man, I’ve never had a desire to go to that particular #festival
(if you can call it that). Maybe it’s because I know that as #transformative
as it might be there would be a certain level of discomfort that comes with it.
Something changed in the last year though. I’ve had a few really interesting conversations with couples who have attended Burning Man together and it altered my perspective. In addition, through having many #intothewild
experiences with my current boyfriend, I’ve learned to trust that he’s always by my side or a step in front of me or behind me, but would never leave me on my own, especially in an uncomfortable situation. For those who know me well, this might be surprising due to how fiercely independent I am, but something about spending 11ish days in #blackrockcity
without a true #partnerincrime
seems more than daunting.
We’ve been talking about doing Burning Man next year. Any thoughts or suggestions as we begin to plan it out? What is your favorite festival?
