an invitation is sent
to come spend time
in nature
and do what nurtures 

there is a description of culture
like fat
that comes with excess
with not having to work
for money
for rent
for food

that culture comes from 
freedom
to ask what is needed

personal development
art
entrepreneurship
social service

flourish in the crack created
in needing and being behind

***

there is no 'other' at burningman
the invitation is to express yourself
the city is not made by someone else
who you may or may not agree with 
it is you doing it 
you and all the other lovely and wonderful people
and its gorgeous 
and an expression of who you are.

of beauty and competence
working together to create large camps
with significant infrastructure
to care for needs and wants

burningman unfolds from shipping containers
blossoms like flowers from seeds.
there's a home depot shopping list
and a sketchup urban plan

***

There's a place just outside Bangalore
brimming with the beauty of the
south India country side

the fast spreading virus of the Indian
mega city has a definite edge 
that expands slowly
in human time.

on the other side
which is still healthy rural forest, jungle and agriculture land
there is good internet

trucks bring water
never been a better time to do solar
shipping containers
pallet racks
plywood and tarps
tents and belkin power strips
electric unicycles

vibrant local markets every Monday
where local farmers sell their produce

agriculture land
leave no trace approach to development
