what a magical night. i love the wish lanterns in thailand and could think of no better way to bring in the new year.
the yoga center was holding a 24 hour meditation service for each of the 24 hours around the globe. since the US is so far behind thailand i woke up on new year's day and went for the meditation when it was turning midnight in the US. made me feel connected to the family and friends who were celebrating.
there were flags for every country and as it turned midnight in each time zone the list was read and the flags from those countries put onto the altar.
it made one of the best new year's celebrations for me.
