Buddhist Simplicity

Pinky has always been surrounded by simple things. The week after he was born, he was carried home by Granny D in this unpretentious carriage covered in pink carnations and gladioli. Every year since, to honor the birth of modest little Pinky D, Granny D has been pulled through the streets on this humble float to commemorate that oh-so-joyous day of Pinky's birth. (She still has his dried umbilical cord in a jar by her bedside--it looks like a vanilla bean.)
