I forgot to add that I almost called him.
I was in LA this weekend. I didn’t tell anyone, for my own reasons. Burning Man left me drained and empty, and all I wanted afterward was to crawl into my childhood bed and sleep until my brain returned to normal.
Don’t get me wrong, Burning Man was FUCKING amazing. But a week out on that playa leaves you burnt, literally and metaphorically. The first thing I did when I got back was jump into Donner Lake, stripped right down to my skivvies and just jumped. I washed the dust out of my hair, off my skin, but couldn’t get it off my heart.
