Forgiveness, Purple Rain, and Lady Luck!


Need forgiveness?   Well, follow the ancient ritual of invoking the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin.   She
is the goddess of healing, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.   In days-gone-by, we offer her incense and violet-colored candles on this day.  She doesn't expect much from Westerners, maybe wear something purple or burn a purple candle.  If nothing else, think of the Prince song: Purple Rain.

It's all good.

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple rain
I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Underneath the purple rain
Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
