The playa definitely took its toll on me — it was an exceptionally dusty year, and I got a bad case of playa lung, as they call it. Burning Man is held on a giant dry lake bed covered in alkali dust, which becomes more and more churned up as the week goes on. Every gust of wind sends giant clouds of fine white dust into the air, sometimes so huge that they obscure the entire sky and limit visibility to less than 5 feet!
I will dedicate my own practice today to women everywhere in this amazing time of metoo posts and consciousness-raising relating to gender inequality. If you want to see the full cover, you may need to do it in person. Nude Yoga Girl and the magazine are exercising compete freedom of expression in displaying nudity in such an out-there way.

When she stopped holding the fires, attendees Larry Harvey and Jerry James kept them going, with a twist — inthe bonfire was an eight-foot-tall wooden man. After the man was ignited, a bystander ran forward and shook the burning man's hand. The wind had shifted slightly, blowing the flames so she was unharmed.
It will be good for you. I was on the playa for about 24 hours before I became a gleeful naked painted person. I frolicked the dust.
The classic female nude has always been a favorite subject of artists. This beautiful woman was over 50 feet tall and was one of a series of three at Burning Man. Art, more than anything else, has been pulling me back to Burning Man since
A gigantic wooden sculpture known as "The Man" is engulfed in flames during the Burning Man arts and music festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. A woman riding in an outrigger fires a flame cannon over the heads of Burning Man participants as they dance in the early hours of the morning. A fire tornado emerges from the burning embers of the "Temple of Whollyness" as it burns at the conclusion of the Burning Man. A Nevada sheriff accepts an invitation from a festival participant as another police officer videotapes the encounter.
