    Thanks Halcyon for your message reaffirming that each of us has unique & special qualities to offer. Indeed BRC is an experimental playground for all kinds of creative urges, forcing Burning Man to become more than it was, embracing more of what the human spirit experiences.

    Heart-felt compassion & love can be explored in BRC right next to the Electric Spanking Machine, the Titty-Twister Absinthe Bar, the 50′ Stainless
    Steel Flaming Dildo, and the Cross-Dressing Band of Southern Belles playing Ukuleles while Drinking Bacon Margaritas on Unicycles….

    PigPile on Simon! ;O}

    Halcyon, I first came across one of your videos on youtube when I was looking for ideas of how to fur my bike. I followed your instructions and “Fur-fur-ella” was a GIANT success.
    Today I saw your post on decompressing, realized it was from the same person who taught me how to fur my bike, and watched some more of your videos. I just wanted to take a minute to say that you are so awesome! So much of what you say speaks to me. I had an AMAZING first burn, and watching this just reminded me again of how magical it was out there. I will have to make sure not to miss the pink ride next year!!!
