A Revelation in the Desert

I just learned (ten minutes ago) that one of the professors at my physics lab is going to Burning Man. He's never been to a festival like this before. I made sure he'd been warned about the challenges… but my concern was unnecessary. His son has been going to Burning Man for years, and is responsible for several art installations. This year the installation will be a wedding chapel, as the professor's son is getting married there.

When the professor gets back, I wonder if he'll look at me in a different light. He knows I go to pagan festivals, and he may have a new appreciation for what goes on at one of them.

Of course, this professor is a physicist. It would be really cool if he started getting ideas for sophisticated technical art installations for next year's festival…
