Holi Week


the other day i had a dentist appointment, and while i was talking with my hygienist, she told me about Holi Week in India. the festival of colours!! where everyone has a grand old time throwing paint at each other to celebrate a spiritual triumph of good over evil.






this just makes me so happy that humans can do such great things with, and for each other still. such a great reminder that the world celebrates with positive action in their own cultural uniqueness.

why can't everyone have this much fun?!

I have a friend from India who told me about this! It's great to hear about things like this because you realise how many strange and interesting things there are to discover in the world. I'd love to participate one day! :D
Have a great day Aron!

I agree!
What a joy to just throw pigment! My friends and I had a creative hat party at new-years, but that´s not half as lively ; )
I think I have the pic in my archive.

There is a large Indian community at Berkeley and I celebrated Holi with them in the courtyard. The best time ever!
