Today is my seventy fifth birthday,
And I just want to tell you
That I love you, each and everyone of you.
Strangers, acquaintances, Muslims, babies
Jews, black people, Hispanics,
Asians, gays, God
This is my bucket list:
1. Tell EVERYONE you love them.
That’s all; that’s it; for one day, now .
These are Burning Man principles: (let’s see if they apply to this effort?)
✔️ Be all inclusive, yep.
✔️ Gift, yep.
✔️ Decommodificate, yep
✔️ Radical self reliance, yep
✔️ Radical self expression, yep
✔️ Working together, yep
✔️ civic duty, ?
✔️ Leave no trace, yep
✔️ Radical volunteerism, yep
✔️ Immediacy, yep
Great, nine out of ten.
✔️ Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, yep
✔️ several of the Ten Commandments, yep
Should be simple, no?
Let’s start with you: I love you.
Pass it on.
