Sometimes life is an ugly circus

Graffiti of the month: November

Well my friends, today is the last friday of the month, so here is the graffiti of the month of November.

How do you decide the titles of your posts?  Graffiti never have titles, or at least not the ones I usually see on the streets. I decided the title of my post one day that was a mess, so when I saw again this photo that day, it made me think that life sometimes seems to be an ugly circus. Fortunately, it only seems sometimes and not forever, otherwise we can become crazy. Or what do you think?

I took this photo in Naucalpan de Juarez, State of Mexico. I saw it while I was on the road to visit my dentist. It is part of a bigger graffitti, so I will post some other photos to finish the puzzle in a future post.

If you have a photo of a graffiti that you want to share, feel free to add the link at the comments.

Have a great weekend!

Hare Krishna devotees either worship their Deities and gurus. The worship of the guru is guru puja. In this portrait, a devotee is paying worship to the murti (a representation that expresses a Divine Spirit) of Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of International Society for Krishna Counsciousness (ISKCON).

Pink Orchids/The Greek Myth of Orchis

Orchidaceae (along with asteraceae) is one of the two largest families of flowering plants, with between 21,950 and 26,049 currently accepted species. The family also includes the delicious vanilla.

The Greek myth of Orchis explains the origin of the plants. Orchis, the son of a nymph and a satyr, came upon a festival of Dionysus (Bacchus) in the forest. He drank too much, and attempted to rape a priestess of Dionysus. For his insult, he was torn apart by the Bacchanalians. His father prayed for him to be restored, but the gods instead changed him into a flower.
