A Little Girl’s Burning Man Experience
A little girl’s Burning Man experience featured on a TEDx talk is adorable in its simplicity. It’s one of those moments when truth is delivered from the mouths of babes. It’s tough not to pay attention to the sweet recollections of a child reminding us all about the principles behind Burning Man and its affiliate events that take place across the world.
As you may well know, Afrikaburn is the South African version and normally takes place each year around the end of April/early May out in the Karoo.
It is always debatable whether or not taking your kids to any kind of outdoor festival that includes debauchery and ample kinds of grown up party mess is a good idea or not. I say, it’s definitely a lot of work to keep an eye on your kids in familiar surroundings, never mind and unpredictable place like Burning Man.
What’s clear with this little girl’s Burning Man experience is that her dad made sure she was protected and nurtured throughout the entire event. We can all be grateful to her pops here, thanks to his upholding the Burning Man principles and sharing them with his child, we all get a reminder too.
Imagine a place where you can be exactly who you want to be, without worrying what other people think, where you can climb on giant art sculptures and have lots of fun. I found that place: Burning Man.What you have heard about Burning Man might not actually be true, you might have heard that it’s a big party with lots of grown ups drinking alcohol and walking around naked. But really there’s a lot more than that… that’s just a little bit of it.” says Julia Wolfe
So, listen up grown ups. Next time you go to Afrikaburn, pick up your dirt and take it home, participate and share, don’t be lame or rain on anyone’s parade or else you’re losing touch. Make sure you have as a nice time as this awesome little kid.
