Go big or go home…

The 14th night of the 7th lunar month

Posted on: September 3, 2009

Tonight is the Ghost Festival. The doors between heaven, earth and the lower realm creak open, allowing deceased ancestors to return to their families.

Many traditions accompany the occasion; food is prepared and incense lit. The air chokes on the smoke from burning paper.

Ask yourself as the sun settles, do that shadows always shift in quite that way?
