With delight I shared Dashain Festival with our children and family at our Bhaktapur Self Sustaining Children home in Sipadol village - For our non Nepal friends this is a special festival celebrated every year with the emphasis on families coming together and sharing blessings of well being and abundance while enjoying special food and laughter. There is also many "Ping" (translation = swing) made of bamboo especially for these festival days and there is always a lot of joy in the swinging and watching the swinging too! The swings only last some days and are generally built in a communal space for everyone to enjoy so their is a lot of excitement to find good ones and swing happily - we found two in our village today. It is heart touching to spend time with these children who have been a part of my life the past 10 years. Having watched these small children evolve and grow into teenagers is truly a gift, and the journey continues!
