If you’ve ever thought about experiencing the beautiful oddity that is the Burning Man festival but kept coming up with reasons against doing so (like, “I’m a responsible human being with a job and a mortgage”) you should probably watch this short documentary about Charlie, an 81 year-old guy who decided to go to the festival and find himself.
Charlie has had to deal with a lot of scary issues in his life (bone cancer, heart issues, diabetes) but he didn’t let that stop him from traveling out into the desert and having a ball.
There’s a lesson here folks: Do what you want, because life is never set in stone.
