Everything Had Life in It

10 mg oral Pharms - Zolpidem (pill / tablet)
Night had just fallen on an early night at Burning Man, & my husband and I wanted to knock ourselves out so we could have at least one good night of sleep. So we each took 10mg (one full pill) of Ambien, & proceeded to walk to the bathrooms to relieve ourselves pre-sleep. 

As soon as we left camp I knew something was up. I felt funny, somewhat chatty (not too unusual for me), and very cheery. That's not the funny part. The streets of Black Rock City, which always look essentially the same, year in year out, seemed like a place I'd never been. There was so much life everywhere; it was bustling like a olde time carnival, similar to the one in the movie adaption of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, where the hero was conceived.

After we made our way home, I couldn't stop marvelling (and talking about) the fake silk flowers with which my friend had adorned her tent. They were in a single row, arcing over her doorway. I'd seen them earlier, but I was seeing them completely new at that point.
I was seeing them completely new at that point.

They had come to life, but were not flowers. No, each blossom was a little grumpy man's disembodied head (somehow not creepily tho), & they were all in subtle movement. No sound; just visuals.

Shortly thereafter, we went to sleep & that was that.

Really fun for me, because I love interesting hallucinations, but do not care for the head trip and/or body feelings that accompany popular hallucinogens.

Will definetly try it again. Was very pleasant!
