Nice day

Today is Galungan, the most important holiday. I'd say "of the year" but it's not that simple. Some years it comes twice. It's not on a particular day but every 210 days. It's the celebration of dharma over anti-dharma when ancestor's spirits come to visit and hang around till ten days later on Kuningan. Penjor, decorated, curving, bamboo poles are everywhere in front of homes and businesses.  It's very quiet around here. Everything's closed, not much traffic. Workers have returned to their villages. Hot earlier. Drizzling now, a little lake forming in front. Peaceful. - dc
