Chris (not Mr. Clarke, but my friend Chris) just sent our camp this email:
In service of our experience of our camp as our (temporary) home in the swirling, blinking, beautiful craziness of Black Rock City , I want to put forth a suggestion for how we each approach our collective space there. Because we are a diverse group, I’m going to translate it into a few different “languages”:
For Planners and other academics: As the population of our Twisted Quacker camp increases, so does intensity of our use of its space and facilities. We should thus each take extra care to reduce our negative impact on the camp, and simultaneously strive to increase our positive impact.
Santa Cruzians: Let’s all put a lot of positive energy into the camp so everyone can feel into their heart-space in our home-space. Manifest a clean and organized kitchen. Bring mindfulness to each item we share as if it were the baby Buddha her/himself.
Sacramentans: Take hella good care of our kitchen and common space.
East Coasters: Don’t be an asshole, clean up after yourself.
