Matsu Festival, Taiwan

What a great picture! This card comes to me from
Angie, who lives in Taiwan. She writes:
'This photo was taken in Dajia, a small fisher
village about 40 km from where I live. On this
card, it shows a participant of Matsu Festival.
Matsu, the Mother, is the protector for all the
sailors. For those whose life depends on the
dangerously unpredictable ocean, Matsu is like
an eternal lighthouse to ensure their safe return.
For those whose loved ones are on the boat, it is for
a peaceful mind.'
Thank you, Angie, for such a lovely card!
Angie put this great stamp on her card. It seems
to be children playing on percussion
instruments. Beautiful!
