Looking for Something?

My Burn


Contemplating on the edge of the Playa

When you read this, I will be heading out into the desert for my 2nd time. This time alone…


Hanging out with the dragons

As you might have read in a previous blog, I talked Tess into going last year and while she would do it again, it wasn’t in the cards this year. So I decided to go solo (as I planned on doing last year). I am both excited and nervous.

Tess and I are a team. I mean, no one knows me as Bob, I am Bob of Tess and Bob (even this blog is named TessnBob.com). My identity is one of two. We are a couple 1st and individuals secondly. I have not traveled alone, for this long, in quite some time. I have not been out of contact (no texting, emails, phone) for this long with Tess in my entire life.

I will be totally alone. With 70,000 people.


Rolling in the dust upon entering Burning Man

I will have friends, in fact, I am camping with one of my dearest friends and there are many of my other friends staying nearby.

That said, I am looking forward to being alone, not because I do not want Tess to go, but I want to take some time to disconnect from the world and be alone with myself. It is time for me to have a journey for and of myself.


I plan on doing a lot of uninterrupted thinking. I hope to draw. A lot. I hope to spend a lot of time looking at (and maybe crawling on) art.

I want to get lost and then I want to find myself. I want to go days on end with no schedule, no itinerary and no responsibilities.

I want to listen to loud music as well as beautiful soft music. I want to be dazzled by lights and laser beams, art cars and music camps. I want to disappear into Burning Man and then be spit out sometime in a week or so. I don’t know how long I’ll stay, but I’ll know it when that time comes.

I am on a strange journey this week, because I am alone.

But I will have Tess in my heart and in my soul and I cannot wait to share with her the pictures, drawings and stories that I am about to experience.

Black Rock City here I come. Show me what you’ve got…

See you on the other side
