NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL "COLOR-BLOCKING"


I'm not a religious person. There aren't strong traditions practiced by my family and my lineage is pretty diluted. Things like that never really get me down. . . until I see photos like these. Thanks, once again, to The Big Picture I get a glimpse of how other cultures celebrate. Every Spring Hindus honor Krishna with color. Lots of color. During "Holi" Hindus pray, dance, eat special food and douse each other with bright pigment.

I was just pining pictures of Holi earlier. I've been in awe of the festival for years. On my to do list. One day!
