Lots and lots of lotuses

There were booths lining both sides of the street to encourage people to be part of the festival. We could try food and drink, make lotus lanterns, play different drums, watch demonstrations of acupuncture, massage, yoga, and meditation, or paint a lotus flower. Here I am, trying my hand at painting a lotus. In the true reflection of the impermanence of Buddhism, the booth had to close down when I was only partway finished, so I had to leave what would have surely been my magnum opus incomplete.
