A Riot of Colors

Shopping in Sri Lanka was an assault on the senses. A riot of colors greeted us at every shop. The masks, the costumes, the paintings were full of art and culture and life. It was glorious.

Choosing gifts (for others and myself) was so very, very difficult. At one point, I considered shutting my eyes, spinning in a circle and buying whatever my fingers touched first.

In the end, though, I settled on being inspired by the colors, the artistry and the memories they triggered. Elephants remind me of Lizz and Julie, cats scream Kitty, puzzles are all for Parker and owls, well owls, are so very, very Robin. 

I love shopping!
