Questions from weedlover:

  1. What do you miss about the bay area?
    I miss three things, primarily:

    • The weather.
    • The people. The bay area is extremely freak friendly and tolerant.
    • I miss there always being wierd and fun things to do. And parties to hang out at.

  2. Do you believe world peace is possible? How?
    I think it is possible. I think there are a few thing that are needed for it, though. Mind you, I am very much a capitalist, but I do hold some socialist ideal. Here is my list of what is needed for world peace:

    • Education for all people in the world. With education people can raise their standard of living. And with education and a higher standard of living, usually comes tolerance. This includes racial, ethinic, gender, and sexuality.
    • A far and even distribution of natural/raw resources. Monopolist control of natural resources is a sure fire way to cause a war.
    • Population control. We are rapidly destroying the earth with our population. As resources run out, people will go to war over them (like we are currently are waging wars for oil). Also, were we are over populated, disease spreads like wild fire. Finally, people just need space. You will find, the more people are spaced out, they more they have a sense of community, and are willing to be there for one-an-other.

  3. Tell me about your favourite experiences at Burningman.
    That is a hard one. I camp with Gigsville, and I don't think I have ever known a more loving group of people. So, just being there, with those people, is the "best". But I think the one event I look back on most fondly for just a sensery perspective, is my first experience at trego hotsprings. Zaps, Duck, and I had gotten there before any of the Gigsvillians not in DPW, and the site had not been mapped yet. It was about 10 am, and Carrie came out, and we helped her map out all of gigsville. I developed a method of etching the camplines in the playa, and spent several hours mapping about 80% of the site in the VERY hot sun. Then we quickly set up camp. About that time, it was nearing sunset, and Cabiria (the nicest, most wonderful person you would ever meet) invited us out to the hotsprings, and handed me a fist full of shrooms. As the stars are just coming out, I ease into the hot water, surrounded by beautiful naked people, I see a rabbit silotted on the ridge, and hear a coyote howl. Right them the shrooms started kicking in. I felt so at peace, and so at home. I don't think I have ever had a more beautiful eqperience in my life.

  4. As you get older, do you believe in the existence of true love any less?
    I believe in true love stronger than ever. What has me jaded is the fact that people grow and change, and the love grows and changes with them. How you love someone one day, will not be how you love them a few years from now. And that love may grow in opposite directions.

  5. Where would you like to travel that you have not traveled to yet and why?
    I would lover to take my camera, with lots of batteries and memory card, and hike/camel-ride/etc (use as few motor vehicles as possible) and start in Morrocco, across the dessert, into the west african rain forrests, then cross the continent to Lake Victoria and the Great Rift Valley, then climb up Kilimenjaro(sp?), then down to the tip of South Africa. Assuming I could avoid the various civil wars and stuff, I think that would be a year long trip that would change me forever. I have been to every continent except Australia, Africa, and Antarctica. Some do I hope to visit them all. I also wish I had a college degree, so I could do the Peace Corp. But, next year, I should be doing Indian. Then the year after that, we are hoping to drift/canoe the Amazon River.

Now, to continue the chain, the stipulations:

  1. Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
  2. I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
  3. You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
  4. You'll include this explanation.
  5. You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed."
