Done, with former strangers: After two years of dithering, I decided to go six weeks before this event (immediacy). It all came together - ticket, ride, camp, gear. The happy coincidences continued in the Dust. People gifted me incredible experiences, many of which were "firsts" for me. I gifted over 20 hours as a Ranger, Ice Fairy and Kitchen Elf. The week was challenging, and totally worth it. It shifted and matured my subconscious beliefs about trade, waste, nudity, intimacy and divinity. Encore!
WHY: Afrikaburn seems to be a radical social experiment in creative self-expression, where I can relearn how to play and create, with less fear and shame.
