My first blog post ever!

I was on Tribe today, which is where I first started blogging and I found my first post. I wanted be sure I had it documented. I haven't changed much since that day in 2005. Grateful Thu, December 1, 2005 - 4:48 AM On Satuday we were outside by our fire and MonkeyBoy was having a little nap and I was listening to the leaves fall and luxuriating in the joy of it. MonkeyBoy is quickly recovering from his second (much smaller surgery) and I am grateful for PSA tests and great medical care, and having such a great, wonderful, grownup boy to love with. I love my life and my job and, living in the amazing space of San Francisco with the freaks, and how I get to live inside the Burning Man community. Almost all of my friends on Tribe are people I have met in the last 5 years since Burning Man. My life is richer than it has ever been. I have 2 friends who with absolute certainty get that I truly want their lives to be joyful and amazing, and even when I am a jerk they know I love them and am just being awkward, not mean...2 friends..I am blessed. The MonkeyBoy has taught me to live without debt, the previous boy tried to teach me but he was so difficult I could not help but resist. So financial freedom has been amazing, to come from evicted all the time as a child to working part time and still being able to pay all the bills. YIPEE!!! and making art, I am ruminating even as I write about crafting a Peace Pilgrim that talks and interacts on the Playa. So, 2005 has been a challenging year with MonkeyBoy's cancer, just living in theshadow of the "C" word has been quite an experience, but we love each other more than ever, he is on the mend and it seems like this cycle might be coming to an end, so YIPEE again... Armadillo Thu, December 1, 2005 - 6:47 AM I am so happy to hear about MonkeyBoy's recovery. This has been a difficult year for the two of you, but at the end of the year there is love and peace and great joy in your life. I hope that 2006 brings even more of the good stuff! Affinity, I am grateful to have you as my teacher! Thank you! Armadillo Jenni Thu, December 1, 2005 - 2:06 PM Hooray Affinity, you're so wonderful! My best to you and MonkeyBoy in the upcoming year, and those after!

Not Being the Crew

Affinity Mingle
One of the interesting parts of our trip Andie Grace, for me, has been being the client, the passenger. Not knowing the staff (although I have made more friends among them than my fellow passengers). It has been a long time since we have not been part of the "event" whether it be a party, or that big event on the desert.
