2a217 - The goddess
After Burning Man 1995, I found a small gold amulet in the dust during cleanup. It was a stylized version of the Venus of Willendorf. I tied it around my neck and wore it for the next year and a half. It seemed to have protected me during the turmoil and tragedy of 1996. A couple of months before the 1997 event, I went into the hot springs pool on the Fly Ranch. Somehow the string came loose and it slipped from my neck and sank to the bottom. It's still down there, somewhere in the mud.
But yet, she is still with me.
