Today marks the south-east-Asian festival of
Beautiful offerings are assembled in little boats created from banana leaves.
In this boat, you put your grievances, recriminations, grudges, sorrows, fears;
anything that is making your heart heavy and sore...
and you release...you let it go...
In Bangkok, you set your offering on a body of water.
In Chang Mai you create a beautiful paper balloon
and release it into the heavens...
You empty your soul of any bitterness you may have been storing there
in order to begin again with a fresh and open heart.
