Welcome to The End.
Here are the last precious dregs of my first chaotic year of ranting online. It's no accident, I suppose, that I chose this most auspicious & patently insane year to record my every other move, my every mad thought. And despite some very serious periods of blues (recorded with the same journalistic zeal & disregard for my privacy with which I have written of high & wonderful times) the Year 2002 ended well. In a surprise turn of events, I found myself dancing December 31st in celebration of the death of the old year & birth of the new alongside can-can girls & fire-twirlers in the streets of Old Bisbee, Arizona. It was one of the greatest nights of my life, and it is recorded here not in words but in pictures. Also herein is a partial photo album of my sixth Burning Man experience, another truly incredible gathering of our time's most beautiful minds. Enjoy.
