Sometimes I get emails that say, "You Go, Boy! If you got it, flaunt it." But, you see, we ALL got it. I believe that most of us, myself included, do not flaunt it enough.

That's one reason why I love Burning Man. So much flaunting! Thick or thin, fat or famished, people are flaunting their bodies and ideas.

There are too many eagles parading as chickens.

I recognize that I have been blessed with certain gifts: Good metabolism, a good orthodontist, supportive parents, reasonable intelligence. And, yes, that makes it easier for me to flaunt.

But it's not mandatory.

I believe that I am sitting on a throne...ruling my world. And EVERYONE is welcome to come up here and rule with me. It's a big throne. And it's non-exclusive. It's just a matter of taking a seat where you belong.

Consider this your formal invitation.
