What does the future of Burning Man look like to you?

What does the future of Burning Man look like to you?

The future of Burning Man as it is is quite bleak, so I'd say the future goes towards thinking about pooling resources together and creating a sustainable piece of land, nurture it towards festival grounds, of and for the community, that can actually be a place that can be sustainable with resources that can grow. It's not just throwing resources into a burning desert situation.

How would you describe society in one word? Why?

How would you describe society in one word? Why?

Colorful. Because there's so many different textures and colors of people’s personalities and faiths and beliefs. Everything about us—the way we look, the way we sound, the way we speak. There's so many different textures. It's beautiful.

What are your thoughts on Obama supporting same-sex marriage?

What are your thoughts  on Obama supporting  same-sex marriage?

Whether or not he's making a political move, he is having an opinion about a very controversial subject which is usually really avoided, and that alone deserves respect. The reason it's avoided is because there's the chance of losing a bunch of voters. Gaining or losing, at least it's an opinion on a very serious and cared-about issue.

What is the most overlooked issue in the county, and what can we do about it now?

What is the most overlooked issue in the county, and what can we do about it now?

I think water pollution is the main issue. And I think we need to address it because in the near future we’re going to be out of clean water, especially since it's radiated now. Drinking water is going to be a major issue.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
