Diwali is a beautiful and joyous occasion with many traditions and much depth. Every year I think I tune in to a different message that this celebration is about. This year the message is Joy, and what a simple and yet important and powerful quality it is. So, rather than explain this ‘festival of lights,’ I will just send out warm wishes for joy and prosperity to everyone I know and love. Here’s to new and auspicious beginnings; and to all the light that overpowers darkness. If we come together as many little lights, we are strong! Here’s to Joy and to the ease with which it spreads!
