The Atlantic‘s InFocus, my favorite photojournal, has posted their yearly collection of Diwali photos from around the world:
Diwali: The Festival of Lights
(Some of the captions are a little… off. For example, I don’t know anyone who worships account books or iPads, but I know of several who ask for Lakshmi’s blessings by way of those objects during Lakshmi puja. Ah, well. Best to take them with a grain of salt and focus on the lovely photography.)
Loads of us still have quite a lot of time left to celebrate, but it’s nice seeing how other folks spend their time.
I think my favorite photo is the one of all the people crowded into a train in their holiday finery as they travel home to celebrate with their families.
Jai Lakshmi Mata Di!
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
