lotus lantern festival.

the lotus lantern festival is in commemoration of the buddha’s birthday, which is on the 8th day of the 4th month on the Chinese lunar calendar. so this year it will be on May 10th.

i marked this on my calendar over a month ago and i was excited to see the see the release of 100,000 wish lanterns into the sky but they unexpectedly changed the date to tomorrow i believe. d’oh! i still had fun looking at all the different lanterns and gazing enviously to those who had lanterns in their possession. hah i bought lantern making kits though, so satisfaction! ALSO.. they were having performances on stage and confetti galore and all the people were just dancing and forming trains of ppl so i was running around w errybody. it felt so awesome, everyone connecting and not afraid of letting loose…  hanging onto shoulders of the person in front or holding hands w strangers. but then again… strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet (thanks lisa!) just sharing the moments between friends. it felt free. it felt real.
