After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Matthew 28:1-10 NIV
As others have noted, we celebrate Easter this year much more as did Jesus' original followers -- in the midst of our fear, pain and doubt. Things didn't feel very joyous that first Easter morning, nor do they now.

Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.

As my prayer book says, ¡Verdaderamente ha resucitado el Señor!

An image between hope and despair.
It has a very strange mood.

Beautiful shot of the water and trees, and beautiful meditation to go with it. Yeah, much more like that first Easter morning....

Today marks the beginning of Songkran, the Thai New Year. For 3 days people splash water on each other and all the Buddha images, at temples, are cleaned. Like Easter, this annual event has been largely canceled.

Easter certainly hasn't been canceled, but we certainly are observing it differently.

Normally the streets would be filled with drunk people dancing and splashing water on each other. Now the streets are quiet and the only thing getting people wet is the occasional rain storm.
