Yesterday was Diwali, so this week's quote is on the festival of light, coming from Tagore:

"The night is black kindle the lamp of love with thy life and devotion." 
                                                 – Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore


{a photo I took on the Ganges in Benares/Varanasi in summer 2005. In the wee hours of the morning, lights are being lit & set afloat on the holiest of rivers}

Check out this Diwali site, with details on the festival, gifts, recipes, etc...
Here are some light inspirations:
All of the lights Now Let there be Light
{from beyond beyond}

Happy Diwali!!!!
I'm off to Ottawa for a conference--looking forward to seeing my fellow Canadian art historians!
