Diva Challenge 339 - Hallow/Autumn
This week's diva challenge was to observe Halloween or autumn - or spring, for those who live where it's now spring rather than fall. Here in Nicaragua, we observe the Day of the Dead rather than Halloween, and it's a solemn day of visiting the cemetary and cleaning the gravesites of loved ones rather than the colorful, festive observance we think of in Mexico. And Nicaragua has neither autumn nor spring. This time of year, the rainy season should be ending and the dry season beginning. But with so many hurricanes this year, it just keeps raining and raining. Anyone who doesn't believe in climate change should try coming to Nicaragua. So, thinking of death and hurricanes and climate change, I drew a stormy tile which nonetheless managed to be beautiful. "And there are stars!" says my sister Kathy. Indeed there are, shining out through the storm. Happy tangling, one and all.
