Greetings to all on this USA day of Thanksgiving. In strong contrast to those affected by world-wide unstable weather, I spent the early morning helping with finishing touches on a mural-painting “minga” near Mindo’s central park. Students, teachers and artists worked in easy harmony over the past few days while all-but perfect sunny skies smiled upon us.
Although the experience filled me with gratitude for these lovely people who embrace foreigners into their culture, my thoughts have also been tweaked to equally-loving people in Central America who are and will be affected by Otto’s late-November visit to the area.
May Otto be kind and remember his manners on this day of Thanksgiving?
News of snow, fires, storms, earthquakes and volcanoes continue to pop into my cyber news, though the ‘Top World News’ stories often feature less-serious issues.
Please pause every so often through your day and remember those who are in less-idyllic settings, and yes, remember to cherish those who make your Life a bit more special.
Thanks go to ALL of you who support my stories, photos and artistic whims, and a special ‘Thanks’ for all who take time to comment, even when I am silent!
You are cherished,
