Lightning In A Bottle: The 5 Things I Learned Last Year

Last year I attended Lighting in a Bottle Festival in Bradley California for the very first time. I was a Coachella veteran and thought I knew everything about festivals and what they could offer. Truth: I could not have been more wrong. A random speaker series on the first day drew my attention it was titled “The Art of Letting Go”. It sparked something in me.

With the general hilarity of that find, we jumped at the chance to see what the Burning Man faithful were up to post burn….and, to our (non) surprise, Craigslist’s slew of examples for a love-that-could-have-been are plentiful, hilarious, and oh so Burning Man.
