I’ve known about Burning Man, an annual event that takes place in the Nevada desert north of Reno, for a number of years. I even know a few ‘burners.’ It looks like quite a party and a celebration, even if it’s smaller than Woodstock was back in the day. Of course, times and culture have changed somewhat since then. I, personally, have never attended this event. (Actually, I didn’t attend Woodstock, either.) What I found quite amusing was that my Meadowlark t-shirt attended Burning Man this summer without me.
A friend of mine won the t-shirt earlier this year in a special drawing for my Notes from the Meadow subscribers. When I shipped off his prize shirt, I asked him to send me a photo of him wearing it. So, he took his t-shirt with him to Burning Man and kindly had someone take a photo of himself wearing it. I hope he had a good time and that the Meadowlark message (“There is a thread of Love we follow”) was well received by his fellow burners who encountered it. Thank you for the creative idea, Micah!
