Burning Man

My third burn. Moments in photography 🙂

Playa time

Photos worth a thousand words. That sense of freedom, of expression, anonymity and yet community.

Burning Man

Evolve!

It’s dusty, it’s dry, hot, cold, it’s full of love, and we keep coming back to what we make into and love to call ‘home’.

The Fire Conclave

‘Welcome Home!’ is my favorite greetings of all! It can do magic.

One big candle for gathering us home year after year, a happy new burn!

Matoom Tea

Standard

After a foot massage session in Bangkok, I was offered a very tasty and relaxing tea. I inquired about it, turned out to be Matoom tea, comes from the Bael fruit tree. Of course, I bought a few packs of it, from an old Chinese man and his cat, and brought it home with me. Here are its benefits!

Matoom Tea
The Matoom (or Matum) tea, sliced fruit, dried in the sun, is a tasty, sweet & healthy drink. It has a hard shell, greenish, yellowish russet skin. On the inside, the flesh is bright orange when dried. The cross-sectional cut reveals the beautiful, uniform seed pockets.

Matoom tea

Dried bael fruit is toasted for tea, hot and cold. It’s rich in carbohydrates, vitamin C, pro-vitamin A, iron, phosphorus & calcium. Now brace yourselves, because Matoom tea is effective for colds, is a good way to treat bronchitis, tracheitis, angina, asthma, is also useful for smokers and people with chronic lung disease.

In Thai, มะตูม

Preparation, 1 slice per cup (250 – 300 ml.) Pour boiling water, brew for 5 minutes, then drink it ^.^

Let’s hear what you think of it too!

Ah! Home!

Burning Man 2011, Rites Of Passage.

My very first burn! Love shines through every grain of dust, shines in the eyes of every single person you meet, and every adventure only brings you more love, more essence, and more truth. I wished to have more pictures but I was so very much into the experience… I got a few of my own, and others from friends, I hope you enjoy them!

 Love & gratitude to all the beautiful souls & beings who shared this experience with me, dancing on the playa, riding our bikes, walking in dust, port-a-potty party, thank you for a lifetime’s magical adventures in one eternal week forever engraved in my heart, the temple’s spiritual moments, the dusty parties, the art car rides, the love in the desert, gazing with the angels at the magical moon, and the surreal sunrise, the hugging, the kissing, the crying, the smiling, the laughing, the burning…
Some things that happen on the playa change you forever.. We are so blessed! And I am so in love with a Burning Man, a Temple, a City, and a beauteous beautiful community.

Made our way to the Ship wreck for a wedding, and when we thought it couldn’t get any prettier, the dust storm descended and added even more beauty & magic… and dust!

Post burn, clean up the dusty mess, with pleasure
