It’s All About The Art

image It’s All About the Art “You’ll love Burning Man,” he’d said, free spirits, people stripped bare of their complicated lives, amazing art.” “What’s not to love? The infamous blowing playa dirt caked in every crack, the wack-a-doodles, the ridiculous sequins and feather boas that stick to your skin in the Nevada heat,” Prudy sneered wiping sand out of her vagina. “Have a brownie, Pru.” An hour later when the music was swirling around her and the magic seeped in, even the art car graveyard made sense. “The sand be damned.

  17. Burning Man has long been on my Bucket List– which seems more crazy each year (my dream). I loved everything about this piece, but the line “Prudy sneered wiping sand out of her vagina.” took it to a fabulous level! Perfection.

    Hope your trip is as amazing as it sounds!
