I had my first Burning Man Anxiety Dream last night. Not my first Burning Man dream, mind you, just the first I can remember clearly manifesting some anxiety. My prior dreams have featured fantastical landscapes with impossible kites and wacked out fun houses.
Last night’s dream though was clearly some subliminal exorcism of a bit of latent anxiety I have about the shade structure. In the dream I was already on the playa with a group of friends (none of whom are actually planning on going with me) and we were still running around looking for parts and trying to get camp set up.
Bring back the kites.
