One day I will go to Burning Man festival, a place where you can be whoever you want to be.
It's a time of self-expression, self-reliance and art in its myriad forms. Travel and creativity excite me and this is a place where seemingly anything can happen. It inspires the mind and the spirit.
I also feel that this week in January is difficult.
We have had the ecstasy of the holiday period, the over-indulgence. Then we had the exuberance of the new year, the resolutions, the new diet, the goal setting. The first days of the new habits and everything went well. Then something happened and we slipped. We missed a daily writing session, we ate pudding and cheese, we didn't go to the gym. But we have to keep picking ourselves up and starting again. Each day is a new start.
So I hope this video inspires you. It's a Burning Man rendition of Dr Seuss' Oh, the places you'll go, and has the ups and the downs of the journey as well as some interesting characters.
Does this inspire you again?
