soooooo who’s going to burning man with me next year? Burning man 2k15 groupp anyone?

Just a little background if you don’t know what burning man is all bout: Once a year nearly 50,000 people all travel to Black Rock Dessert in Nevada to participate in a week long event. A city is built up, lived in, and destroyed all within that week. One big rule for the event is leave no trace, literally people will be on their hands and knees picking up lil bits of confetti one by one if needed. Once the event is over there is no evidence that anyone was even there. Anyone and everyone is accepted and you can pretty much do whatever the hell you want as long as you’re not hurting other people. Many people set up lil villages within the city, each village is like it’s own little community that sets up a big display and welcomes anyone willing to participate in whatever they’re doing. There’s also a huge array of all different kinds of artwork (many of which are burnt eventually cause fire). Another really cool thing about this place is the fact that everyone runs on a system of sharing. Paying for anything or charging others for things is prohibited which gives everyone more of a sense of community. You pretty much bring all the food and water you need for the week and make friends with your neighbors, they’ll most likely share with you anything and everything they have. At the end they burn a big statue of a man hence the name. It’s pretty much a big week long art festival/rave/meet cool people/drink all the alcohol/do all the drugs/share and make friends/party 24/7

jim and jamie dutcher, determined to show “the hidden life of wolves”, lived for six years with a pack of wolves in the idaho wilderness of yellowstone. a constant but unobtrusive presence, the dutchers earned the unshakable trust of the wolves, and came to know them as complex, highly intelligent animals with distinct individual personalities, who are caring, playful and above all devoted to family.

"only a select few other species exhibit these same traits so clearly," they note. "they are capable of not only emotion but also real compassion. this is the view of the wolf that we want to share. …it is an animal that cares for its sick and desperately needs to be part of something bigger than itself - the pack. the bond a wolf has to its pack is certainly as strong as the bond a human being has to his or her family."

they add, “rarely did two wolves pass each other without playfully rubbing shoulders together or exchanging a brief lick. so often we would see two wolves relaxing together, curled up beside each other.” the dutchers also recount wolf behavior rarely documented: grief at the death of a pack mate; excitement over the birth of pups; and the shared role of raising young pack members.

but as the wolves struggle to reestablish their foothold in the american west, their public demonization continues.  say the dutchers, “as we see wolves, once again, being shot, trapped and poisoned, we recognize that our unique experience, living with wolves, is unlikely to ever happen again, and for that reason we feel that we have an obligation to share the lives of these wolves with the widest audience possible.”

it’s not just the wolves at stake, but the entire yellowstone ecosystem. wolves keep the elk gene pool strong (no other predator does this); they redistribute elk herds, allowing vegetation to recover along rivers and streams, which provides food for beavers; and they keep the number of coyotes in check, which helps to maintain populations of rodents, antelopes and birds of prey.

I went to this book store and their books were wrapped up in paper with small descriptions so no one would “judge a book by its cover”
