Janis Joplin lived from 1943 to 1970, dying of a drug overdose in October of 1970.  She electrified audiences wherever she performed.

When I was younger I did not appreciate her singing but I do now.

Sunday Stamps II 142

This week Sunday stamps is up to the letter E.
A perfect USA stamp for this week:


A Solar eclipse stamp!
The recent eclipse was a big deal in the USA - even if not in the path of totality a partial eclipse could be seen from most of the country.  I hope everyone wore their eclipse glasses and did not ruin their eyes.
Joining SeeitonaPostcard this week for the letter E.

Sunday Stamps II 141

Sunday Stamps is up to the Letter D, and sharing a stamp from a country whose name begins with D.  I decided to go back to the US Postal Service and see what I could find.  I found a stamp commemorating a festival I am unfamiliar with, and hey, it's coming up this fall.

From the US Postal Service:
"In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service® commemorates the joyous festival of Diwali, which is also known as Deepavali. One of the most important annual Hindu events, the holiday celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Spanning five days each autumn, it is considered by some to be the start of the new year.

Diwali is a shortened version of the Sanskrit word Deepavali, which roughly translates as “a necklace of lights.” During Diwali flickering oil-wick lamps called diyas dot the homes of observers around the world. The stamp features a traditional diya against a background of glimmering gold and flower petals.  The meaning of Diwali often depends on regional identity on the Indian subcontinent."
