Week 11

Some people say that I'm pretty. Am I? I know not. What I do know is that I like to laugh, a lot. My laughter lights the world, my mother says; but she's my mother after all, what else would she say?

In the picture above you can see me celebrating the Festival of Water or Loy Krathong, in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This festival marks the end of the dry season and the beginning of the rainy one.

For three days (and more, actually) we eat, drink, and participate in endless water fights and have tons of fun, placing for awhile all our troubles aside. The water, as it flows, plentiful, seems to wash everything clear, our bodies and souls. This is a thing of wonder and joy for me, and makes me smile wider still.
