Memoirs From a Burn

2019.08.24 (Reno, Nevada: 2 days before arriving at Burning Man)

Travel and accommodation complications have continued and changed, delaying departure plans. I am using grounding tools/totems; tapping into beautiful memories, releasing aggression, transformation embraced and remembering self-annihilation overcome. Listening to Debussy, Dillinger Escape Plan, Cory Allen, Tool, This Will Destroy You and remembering the words of Bjork and how grateful I am to escape into an auditory wonderland.

“Genius to fall asleep

To your tape last night

(So warm)

Sounds go through the muscles

These abstract wordless movements

They start off cells that

Haven't been touched before

These cells are virgins

(Waking up slowly)

My headphones

They saved my life

Your tape

It lulled me to sleep

To sleep, to sleep

Nothing will be the same

(I'm fast asleep)

I like this resonance

It elevates me

I don't recognize myself

This is very interesting

My headphones

They saved my life

Your tape

It lulled me to sleep

To sleep, to sleep

I'm fast asleep now

(I'm fast asleep)

My headphones

They saved, saved my life

Your tape

It lulled me to sleep

To sleep, to sleep”

-Bjork
