Shubh Divali, Peace and Light and Long Hikes On The Cliffs...

Today is Divali, and everyone is eating amazing vegetarian curry, visiting each other, eating some more, lighting deyas, and I AM MISSING IT SO MUCH!!!

However, today the sun shone out of a crisp blue sky, and we went hiking along the cliffs to a cafe, had a picnic and hot coffee and cocoa, and walked back along the beach for MILES. It was so lovely that I almost didn't mind missing Divali. We lit a candle in the window, and hopefully Laxmi still visit us tonight, and bring good fortune and good things.

Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.

You mean they don't celebrate Divali it in England? They have a large Indian population in England, don't they?

Oh, Lordy, wait until Carnival! Then there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth!

Lou, Plenty of Hindus in England, but no friends nearby. We did hear fireworks, but we couldn't tell where they were coming from or we would have invited ourselves over for sure!

Witchypoo, Theresa and Sheena are going to Trini for Carnival. I'm putting my fingers in my ears and going "LA, LA, LA!!"
