Writing On The Wall

Porta Potties are an integral part of the Burning Man experience. Obviously.

Hence, porta potties.  One of the things I adore about Burner culture is the way it embraces both the profane and the profound and lets them co-exist, simultaneously.  I thought the porta potties were a poetic, if not stinky, example of this ethos.  Nearly every porta potty interior is adorned with some kind of graffiti. Here are some of my favorite moments from inner walls of the 2015 Porta Potties:

    I heard part of your introduction and radio show this afternoon …

    Here’s my suggestion, that there is a helpful point at which a person can begin contemplation and putting the pieces together to make sense of ones life expierences.

    There is only truth.

    Wait, don’t move on or try to skip ahead. Stay right here.

    Seriously ponder, meditate and pray… Consider this idea deeply.
