#SoCS July 30/16 – Art

Linda’s prompt

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “art.” Write a post regarding “art,” be it an object or a name. Note: I’m not asking you to draw something, but if you’d like to, we’d love to see that too! Enjoy!

So tonight I am suffering from a real headache… I think it is a side effect of this detox tea I am drinking… sorry, TMI, but bad tummy all day followed by headache from hell, not great!

And during this suffering of mine, I had to accompany my mother in law to a special ladies afternoon. It is a time of year called Teeyan, celebrated in Punjab, when women, old and young, married or single, get together back in their villages, and enjoy time with no one there to stop them. They sing, dance, eat, chat, and enjoy the time with their friends and cousins.

We were encouraged to let our hair down, sort of ” what goes on tour, stays on tour” kinda thing! That meant, for many of the elder ladies, to dance, unashamedly, and sing slightly raucous songs, or tell dirty jokes… all was forgiven today!

What does this have to do with art? I can hear you…

There is art involved, from the singing and dancing, to the pretty hairstyles lovingly crafted by the women.

But one form of art I had to mention was the henna painting. Lil Princess was dying to have her hands decorated with henna, so I managed to take some photos of the Henna Artist in action, and the finished result, along with my hand too!


There you have it. ART!

    I’m so curious about that henna art, after seeing it on women of India–it’s so much more elegant than tattoos! Girls, read the memo!!

    Gorgeous. I’ve always wanted to do something spectacular in henna. One day I will. In the meantime, my girls have an annual tradition of stopping at the henna booth at the state fair for some body decoration 🙂

    Henna is cool. It is a very unique art form that just looks better than a tattoo.

In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
