"And Death Shall Have No Dominion" -- Dylan Thomas

These are photographs I took this year at Burning Man. They're of a little memorial I made for my friend Sonia who died this year. I did this for Sonia and for our friend ana and all of our Live Journal friends who wanted me to carry their love for her there and let it go in the fire.



This temple is the most amazing creation, and the experience of participathing in this shrine by writing something to someone who has passed over is powerful and cathartic. It's so powerful it's a little hard to describe. The feeling there is palpable with people openly weeping, praying, hugging each other and meditating. There are monks walking around, people ringing Tibetan prayer bowls, and still other people dancing or burning sage and incense. It's so beautiful it's hard to put into words what it feels like to be there. So here finally are a few photographs because ana was feeling sad and missing Sonia tonight..
