Welcome to September 2013

Humans like to explore new energies as each month begins, the seasons change, and one year rolls into another as we try to keep up with technology, world events, and the other things that impact our consciousness from day to day. The word NEW generally relates to HOPE so let us hope for the best with Syria and the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant leak because this is very serious and must be followed.

Notes from a reader of this blog

Many think Burning Man is just a bunch of hippies partying in the desert; a full week of days and nights filled with dust, drugs, Dub Step and all around debauchery. However anyone who has actually been will beg to differ. The event is quite literally indescribable - the art, costumes, events, and community all come together in the middle of the inhospitable Nevada desert once a year for only a week. During this time, Black Rock City becomes Nevada's third largest city and the community that builds this place is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Many of the fantastic bits, like the Temple and the Man, are burned throughout the week and at the end, we all go home dusty, in various states of disarray, with minds officially blown.
