i love you times infinity

this last weekend i was out of town again--this time up on south shore. kelly and mel, friends who i camped with for my first three years on the playa, who took my on my first journey into my head, who've watched me transform portions of myself into orange, who i've planned with and worried with and fought with and danced with, were married a couple weeks ago. in lieu of a full wedding celebration, they invited 25 or so folks to join them in a suh-WEET cabin in tahoe for a weekend. i continue to be overwhelmingly impressed by what people put into their tahoe housing situations. i mean, my god. there was a hot tub, of course. i mean duh--we're in tahoe. and a dry sauna, and a billiard table. but there was also an indoor pool. and a steam room, which is totally my new absolute favorite toy EVER. also, kelly brought up his sound system, and we had approximately seven djs in the house. also also, part of the weekend's purpose was the getting-to-know-everyone-better thing, and what method would be preferred to rearranging everyone's brains for a few hours?

so yeah, good weekend. a bunch of people who know me really well, and who i don't see as often as i'd like. had some particularly good downloads with pete, who was the most important fixture of my first burn and whose insight i value as much as anyone else i've ever been friends with.

i also got to re-witness one of the better relationships i've had the fortune to spend time with. i hate to admit it, but the fact that kelly and melissa officially got married validated their commitment in a way that i hadn't acknowledged previously, despite their adament feelings about the stupidity of marriage. and i LOVE that mel--who teaches 4th grade and is suuuuper-careful about guarding parts of her private life from her administration, her co-workers, and her kids--now unapologetically has a large, noticeable tattoo of an mobius strip-style infinity symbol on her wrist instead of a wedding band.

good people.
lucky to know them.
