Sister Dana was unable to attend Burning Man in person this year, so we brought
her spirit along with us. Her generous, sharing effluvience was widely
appreciated and we found many souls touched simply by viewing her image.
Our first stop was the Reno Travelodge - $26 a night and right across from a liquor store, too. Shown here with Louise, Sister Dana eyed the swimming pool, but we spent our time eating dinner at a Mexican restaurant. We did not take advantage of the free milk. NOTE: The Travelodge is now the Desert Rose Inn (July 2007).
After entering Black Rock City and setting up camp, Sister Dana immediately went out and met the art and the people. Starting at The Man himself, the overwhelming impact of her presence was obvious in people 's response to her image.
We then proceeded down the spine of the man and found Sister Dana at one with the lingam and several people dressed in yellow.
Other body parts were still under construction, but the Sister reached out and spread peace and joy to those in the vicinity.
Her influence spread into Black Rock City itself.
Happy in the knowledge that her generosity and love were spreading over the playa, Sister Dana retreated into the dust storms, appearing next at the Lazy Camp Cocktail Party.
High on life, she then spirited herself across the playa - we caught only a few pictures.
We lost contact with Sister Dana the night of the burn - she moved too fast for us. And I think she found a way to spread her spirit throughout the playa that prohibited photos. We next have photos in Reno, checking out Burning Man spots of interest, recovering from the high of the Burn.
