It’s the end of the month already, and because it’s October many people have Halloween on their minds. Not me. I never liked that creepy holiday — or festival or whatever you want to call it — ranking it down there with Christmas as annual events that I go out of my way to avoid and ignore. Witches and goblins and haunted houses? Count me out. Come to think of it, Christians and Ghosts are about the same thing, aren’t they? They both are equally frightening and perplexing phenomena that seem to fascinate a certain percentage of the confused populace. Boo!
But I digress. Instead of trick or treating, I thought it much more interesting to post photos of some of my favorite people; the novice monks from Tat Ein monastery in Shan State.
I’m still in the process of reviewing and editing the mammoth bunch of photos that I took during my recent trip to Myanmar — many of them at the monastery — but whenever I see images of those happy-go-lucky young monks it puts a big smile on my face. Really, these kids crack me up every time. I hope you enjoy these photos too; a nice way to end a scary month!
