Written in the snow.....

June 4, 2009

It was great to see Oriental languages in the snow at Yosemite…

First, the Tamizh messages:

vazhga vaLamudan

“vAzhga vaLamudan” (may you live and prosper) says the message, adding “enjay” for good measure!

This one says “jOthi ishai” (light and music):

jOthi ishai snow

Apparently they were made by the Aradhya family:

aradhya family enjay

A major source of disappointment was this message in Kannada:

vinu heart deepa yosemite 300509

Vinu heart Deepa, it says. I never got to meet Vinu and test his/her truly melting love!

There was also this message in the Japanese/Chinese Kanji script:

kanji lettering 300509

Even and were not able to say what those characters mean!

So…oriental languages, and a message of love…who ever thought that I would see my own name in the snow in transient graffiti?
