Thoughtful Thursday-Tagore Quote

I wrote out this quote from Rabindranath Tagore as I thought about the Lantern Festival sponsored by the Greater Newburyport Ovarian Cancer Awareness group. I'll be one of the volunteer calligraphers. Here's a little bit about the event which will take place on Sunday, September 1st at Frog Pond at Bartlet Mall in Newburyport from 6-8 PM.

Come float a lantern with us...

In the Japanese, Chinese, and Thai tradition of remembering departed loved ones and making wishes for the future, come decorate, light, and float lanterns at dusk.

Bring a picnic supper, chair, or blanket
Enjoy performers providing live music
Decorate a lantern with your message
Calligraphers and decorating materials will be available
Float your lantern at dusk as a way to remember departed family members and friends or as a way to send a message of hope, love, and peace into the world or to make a wish for the future.
Hope to see you there!

There is no charge for admission. A $10 donation will be accepted for each lantern and candle.
