For this week's (late, sorry!) Artsy Fartsy, I thought I'd share with you all some photos I found online from Northern Thailand's Loy Krathong Festival (also known as Yee Peng). I think they are pretty impressive. I hope you think so, too.
"The Buddhist tradition states that when you release a lantern, Kome Loy, into the sky, you are releasing your misgivings and are to make a wish. This cleansing ritual makes it difficult to think of anything but how beautiful our lives are as we watched everyone’s wish float toward the heavens."
