|Interior of The Temple (ground level)

During the course of the Burning Man event, essentially every reachable surface of the temple is covered with written memorials to recently lost loved ones, or statements of things people wish to move past in their personal lives. Watching the temple burn on Sunday night thereby becomes cathartic for many.
Given the high level of creativity and intelligence which seems to be common amongst Burning Man attendees, many of these memorials and statements were just heartbreaking. I started reading some of them on the morning of the temple burn, and eventually had to stop.
