Last weekend, it was Carnaval time in Brazil and the whole country enjoyed four days of music, costumes fireworks and partying. Here in Mevlana Garden, the Temple of the White lotus was dressed up with bright colors and wide grins.
We enjoyed two evenings when guests, friends and family gathered together to celebrate. Confetti and ribbons flew through the air as children of all ages danced and played together. Live music brought our bodies to life and it was a time to let loose and to be spontaneous and creative.
It was sometimes hard to tell who was who as colorful figures danced by, hidden behind disguises and costumes. One mask hid the face of our Beloved as he joined us in the dance, giving us extra cause for celebration in this blessed life.
