Thanksgiving : truth & consequence

Last year's Thanksgiving post by wonder | wander | women seems so very far away and removed from the world we live in today.

So much has happened in the intervening year, much of which has left us astonished and astounded, bemused and bewildered, righteous and raging. A world where much has dimmed and dulled.

Hail Hillary!

wonder | wander | women woke bright and early, eager and excited to cast our vote for our candidate on this crucial election day.

On the walk to the voting center the sun shone bright, the air was clear, the world was pregnant with possibility.

Our hearts full to bursting with love for this country, the beacon of hope for the rest of the world that seems to be on tilt right now.

Even after a year and a half under fire and in the trenches, we were enthused and inspired, all fired up!

Days of the Living, the Dead & the Sainted

Dating back to Pre-Columbian times, Dia de Muertos honors the mysteries of life and death, through both celebration and reverence.

Prior to Spanish colonization in the 16th century, the celebration took place at the beginning of summer. Gradually it came to coincide with the Western Christian triduum of Allhallowtide: All Saints' Eve (Halloween, Oct 31), All Saints' Day (Nov 1), and All Souls' Day (Nov 2).
