✨ H O L I ✨ the colorful celebration of love in honor of Krishna. I learned that each color has a meaning; green is new beginnings, red is love, yellow is turmeric, and blue is for Krishna. Everyone gathers in the streets and temples across India to play Holi. Everyone dances, and sings, rubs colors on each other’s faces, and soaks each other in water.
I celebrated this year in Mathura, one of the biggest celebrations of Holi in India. It was chaotic, exciting, exhausting, overwhelming, intense, and fun. We started at 8 AM when the streets were already packed with people and colors floated in the air, explosions of clouds of reds and blues and yellows and pinks, people colored from head to toe in layers and layers of powder. It was so beautiful just to look at, to observe this physical celebration of one of the strongest and most powerful emotions in the world.
I always have to be 100% honest with you guys- because if a woman comes to India and isn’t aware, or on her guard, then this day especially will be overwhelming- I WAS groped on Holi. And I spent the day with 4 of my guy friends and it unfortunately still happened. A man drove by on a motorbike, grabbed my boob, and immediately drove away afterwards. I screamed and shouted at him at the top of my lungs, but unfortunately couldn’t punch him in the face because he drove away. It’s such a shame that this happens in this beautiful, vibrant country and more so on a day that’s supposed to celebrate love. It’s not a representation of this wonderful country, but it is something that happens (NOT as often as it’s made out to be, guys). I received so many beautiful messages from so many of you yesterday, and I appreciate and love every single one of you so much, so, thank you 💗
I love India and everything about her, her colors & celebrations & chaos & intensity. She really teaches you how to surrender. *read my top 10 reasons why I love India, link is in the bio!!*

Spending time in wide open places helps me keep perspective about scale; not just from a geological perspective but more importantly as it relates to whatever curveball life might be tossing my way at any particular moment and the proper weight I should really be attaching to worrying about it.

What a typical view when you are in an alley and take a look up to the sky. The smell of fresh clothes is everywhere and sometimes the smell of fresh pee of cats and dogs. A weird mixture xD
I noticed the Ambassador of Iceland, his wife, and @shoplifterart breaking off from the festive (and quite crowded) opening party and slipping away to the galleries upstairs. I caught up with them and snapped this photo as these old friends reminisced and celebrated the ever-fabulous Shoplifter’s work in @phillipscollection ‘s Nordic Impressions exhibition.
