Sensations of Spring

 

This is a gratitude post and a wish for you to have a Happy Equinox and a Happy Nowruz! These guys were jamming it up in one of the many booths selling props, costumes, instruments, bling and dancer decor at Rakkasah West this weekend. I only wish I could pull these guys out of a closet to play ANY time I need a lift. Anger and sadness don't have a chance in the midst of live, passionate, talented rhythm!

Shame on me for being shy, not asking their names or permission to film. I'll do better next year. It's a bunch of fabulous tabla players and an oud master. Thank you Gentleman for lifting my heart!

A few other "spring" portraits for your ogling pleasure:

A Nowruz-Ostara recipe I  made last year but that I didn't share in this blog. I blended Pagan equinox tradition of eggs with Nowruz tradition and ingredients (rosewater and the hyacinth blossom in the middle). It was pretty so I had to share. I am pretty sure it was yummy. Let me know if you want me to try to dig up the recipe I tweaked.
