We’re moving from one month into another, again. Happy month-end! Happy deipnôn!
Now, month-ends are, for some reason, very nostalgic to me. I guess, it’s because it reminds me of all the times I prayed for a chance to start fresh. I know every day is a chance to reset, but there’s something about the Moon (literal, symbolic, or both) that makes a monthly reboot especially significant.
My Instagram album has been witness to these moments many, many times already:
Incidentally, it’s also Diwali tonight, too. Shubh Diwali! Hail the victory of light over darkness!
I am, however, stuck at work right now–but if I weren’t, I’d be with my dear friend, the Indophile, having a nice Indian dinner at home.
Here was last year’s annual Lakshmi and Ganesha puja, which we hope to perform this weekend:
May all the gracious Gods-who-move-the-world look after your way; bring you safely from the past into the future, from yesterday into tomorrow, from darkness into light. Om. Ita est.
