|Color Toss by Ribshots|
This year was different. Full on festival with hundreds in attendance at Excelsior High School in Norwalk. There was a color toss every hour, yoga, live music all day and food.
I first discovered Holi in 2006 back in Berkeley when I had Indian friends:
Check out the twinky version of myself. Holi is meant to be wet. But with all the smart phones and cameras - colored, edible dry powder has been used... but if you had Asama, you would dye. See what I did there?
It's to celebrate spring, fertility, love... you're supposed to walk around and rub colors on strangers and wish them a happy Holi. Though we used this opportunity to touch hot shirtless guys... the value is still there.
|Check out that Greek god on the left... yes... Happy Holi|

|We had a stranger straddle our legs to take the picture. :D|
As you can see.. it was amazing... until I couldn't breath. I told myself not to panic and breathed through my nose. Good lord.
The second time we learned and watched from afar. Check out Charle's video:
Eventual you become a brown mess.

Apparently there are a handful of tutorials online on how to take your DSLR to Holi and not damage it. We saw a ton of professional cameras with plastic bags and rubber bands wrapped around. We stuck with our iPhones. With a little rub on the grass they were as good as new.
Spring is here! Celebrate good karma and well being! I feel like this is the theme of March with my spin classes and portion control. I'm still eating lots of food... just a little less. YourMamaStay!
