Castles in the Sky

2002-09-20 18:13:30+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

Suggested Burning Man theme for next year: Castles in the sky. Divide the two sides of the city into the neurotics and the psychotics. Lots of good mythology and imagery, both recent and past, to draw on. And it ties in to one of the biggest challenges I have with living in Black Rock City for a week:

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
--- Thoreau

I was thinking something evoking steampunk flight.

Now, for some reason, I've got Neil Young's Castles Burning running through my head.

It's okay, Larry. Don't let it bring you down. <grin> Actually, I think using the entire "After the Goldrush" album as a Burning Man theme might apply for "Castles in the sky."
