Something to enjoy

I found this via the New Internationalist Blog and twitter update. In case you miss them, those are kites flapping above the roofs of homes in India, in celebration of the Makar Sankranti festival, which celebrates the return of the sun to the northern hemisphere and the awakening of the gods from their six-month slumber.

Which reminds me that Australia, in the southern hemisphere, is now heading into the reverse – the fallow period of our cycle of sun and the seasons. A good time for reflection, licking ones wounds, I guess, and recharging.

The photo, by photographer Adeel Halim, based in Mumbai, India, is published on the NI blog's creative commons license, and hence republished here. Enjoy.
