Happy Deepavali

Happy Deepavali to all DPBs around the world. May the glow of lights illuminate our hearts and minds.

This is my neighbour's little daughter, Akhila, in her new clothes. We were invited to their house to join them in the Deepavali celebration, which is a celebration of light over darkness, or good over evil.

She's a pretty girl. Celebrating light over darkness sounds like a great idea, especially as it's getting very dark where I live as winter is approaching.

a very wonderful and traditional and serene scene

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
