If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

Hindu Holi-ness: the festival of colors

Holi, the Hindu festival of colors, is a celebration of the beginning of Spring observed in India. Celebrants splash each other with powdered colors and water like God, the divine artist, splashes the world with the amazing colors of Spring. This is an artist's way of celebrating the beginning of spring!
