Happiness is Burning Man: Burn Night

The burning of  the man at burning man

The difference between art about death and actual death is that one’s a celebration and the other’s a dull fact. ~ Damien Hirst

Burning Man gets talked about in many ways every year, those who have never attended paint upon it what they would like it to be.  Those who want to think it’s evil talk about nothing but drugs and immoral behavior.  Those who want it to be a great party describe it as such, some see it as spirituality.  I have always said you can find and make the event whatever you want or need it to be.  The center piece of the event for many is the burning of the man the last Saturday night of the event.  I have often described it as the equivalent of a New Year’s Eve celebration with a whole lot of fire and art.

Tonight, I am posting a series of photos of the burning of the man this year, 2017, in order from the beginning to the embers of the burn.  Enjoy, and have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
