More Than Enough

The sweat lodge was beautiful- a Native American tradition where and entire community huddles shoulder to shoulder in a 5 foot high pitch black tent and sweats in the heat of lava rock. I was trapped as far away from the opening as I could possibly be but I learned to feel power in that. Escape wasn’t an option so I just had to suck it up- and then remember to blow it out. That shit is hot and claustrophobic as hell. The chief compared it to the womb. But yeah, it was definitely more like hell. A beautiful calamity.

Today I worked housekeeping. I stripped rooms which means I set the pace, exhausting. I thought a lot about my love. I used to worry that my love was as fleeting as all of my other interests or endeavors. This thing with Griffin has proven otherwise. I’m realizing that it might never go away but I’m becoming OK with that. I have more than enough love.

Omega

I just wrote a long entry about group vortex and realized I probably sound crazy so I’m not going to post it. I want to learn how to facilitate it. It’s the most amazing dream work I’ve ever done.

Tonight I might do a sweat lodge.

I promise I won’t join a cult.

I Will Burn Again

Wow, BURNING MAN ROCKED MY WORLD. I’m at Omega now. There’s a cat living near my tent so the daddy-long-leg population isn’t daunting. I miss Black Rock City. I’m not going to say anything else about it. It’s like telling you an anecdote about an office friend you don’t know… even worse it’s got a “you had to be there” kind of punch line.

Omega has great food. I had Indian last night, sushi tonight so I’m putting on the weight I melted off last week. I’m still confident in my relationship with Nick. Usually when I get a chance to wander I think I’m better off alone- permanently, but not this time. I feel like I’m changing and growing in ways that are going to make me a better companion.

I bought an Entrepreneur magazine and I feel empowered. I don’t know if it’s the articles or the bright orange cover. Also, I saw a quote about being successful through service rather than competition. Things keep happening. I’m also keeping a private journal. My creative processes are fixin‘ to explode all over the place.
