Dicky Davies Burning Man fiasco
For Christian "Dicky" Davies, Burning Man, isn't exactly his cup of tea. The annual, "hippy fest," in Nevada has the reserved 27-year-old feeling like he is not really part of the group. And when he is...it's a little fake.
"Dicky doesn't like to dance to electronica. Dicky doesn't like glo-sticks or pink cowboy hats. Dicky doesn't trust touchie-feelie strangers who want to be his best friend," says Meredith May in a San Francisco Chronicle article.
But Dicky doesn't want to call it quits just yet. So he created a plan. His roommate built him "Dicky Box," a see-through room decorated with white Ikea furniture, complete with a mail slot for accepting food, notes and presents from anybody who is willing to give them up.
"Inside Dickey Box, Dicky can do things he likes to do: write in his journal, observe and contemplate. He can be his reserved self while still enjoying the art spectacle that is Burning Man, without getting called the worst slur possible on the playa: "spectator," says May.
He anticipates staying inside his box for the entire weeklong event.
"The idea of letting go and immersing myself in the community is uncomfortable for me," he told the Chronicle. "I'm more standoffish. In a lot of ways the box is pretty great manifestation of how I feel about Burning Man. I guess the irony is that I'm in smack middle of everything."
I think it’s just about time for Dicky to --get a life.
