sunday, september 6, 2009. 2 o'clock gate-ish. 8am-ish.
the morning of the temple burn.
-saw that karen had left :(
-woke up after a few hours' sleep and rode out to the 2:00 gate
-took some pictures
-did some yoga, looked up from my forward bending and said hello to callie on the mountain. perfect position to see her
-watched a dust storm come in
-hung out at camp
-had a last supper of sorts with the remaining howarya's - patti, ben, bonnie, me. also had jay and zach over for dinner. fajitas! pascal joined us later.
-walked over to the temple. saw it start on fire while we were still walking
-tried to do a lap after it fell, but it was just too much of a cluster
-walked around and found the most incredible fire circle with fantastic drumming. a guy was spinning a sword on fire, rad. watched for an hour
-got to use a fire thrower. RAD
-hopped on the 11:11 art car and cruised around the playa. got dropped off near center camp and headed to the man base for the 12:30 "crude imitation" portrayal of 2007's crude awakening. was an air raid siren horn tooter. thank you camp joyism and glow girl!
-walked home and found the dragon art car, talked to the guy who ran it, got to tour it. it was fantastic. was gifted natural lippy from a woman sitting on top of the dragon. thank you.
-got to bed around 2? woke up while it was still dark having to pee really badly but was so freezing had to psyche myself up for 5 minutes before i could crawl out of my sleeping bag. it was so cold
tomorrow we leave BRC. sad.
