Thousands of Man hours were ripped to shreds by one of Mother Nature's whims. Our camp was devastated. Jaws hung open in disbelief.

This was a critical point in my Burning Man experience this year.
This was NOT what was supposed to happen.
I had two choices:
- Be upset that our work was destroyed. Be bitter that the conditions aren't ideal. Be mad that none of my costumes work in this crappy weather.
- Let go of the way I wanted this experience to be, and look at at with fresh eyes. Try to see it free from my expectations and see what good is there below the surface.
