Was it because I asked for a festival of lights, a coincidence, or maybe little Diwalis were taking place all over the world on this special day!
My Story of Diwali
Still not to spiffy from a cold, yesterday, I drug myself out of the house and up to Safeway (the grocery store) anyway. It was The Husband’s birthday and there is a dinner to make. On the way, National Public Radio was doing a special report on the Hindu Festival of Lights, Diwali, November 13th I was suddenly whisked back to 1985 when I got to experience Diwali first hand in Kathmandu. The butter lamps, chalk paintings on the streets, and ancient buildings dripping with colored lights, lit up in my memory. I still can see it all and wonder where my photos are, also I feel a sad longing and I wished I could experience such brilliance again.
Not as it often happens with wish, they are lost or forgotten, this one was granted soon as I left the store. The clouds aligned and the sky sparkled for a moment then tuned this tree into a brilliant glowing light! Was it because I asked for a festival of lights, a coincidence, or maybe little Diwalis were taking place all over the world on this special day? Did You have an experience of Diwali Yesterday? Any time this week will do 😉 .
Oh yes and we had cake with candle, too.
