The past cannot be cured.~ Elizabeth I
English – Royalty September 7, 1533 – March 24, 1603
Holidays and Celebrations:
- National Beer Lovers Day
- 2nd day of Rosh Hashana (Jewish Observance)
- Grandma Moses Day
September 7th is the 2nd day of Rosh Hashana. Celebrate by lighting candles, praying, eating an apple dipped in honey to think of the sweet new year. Often a fish head is included on the table to remember that you are a head and not a tail.
As children head off to school it’s OK for you to have a beer today. It is National Beer Lovers’ Day.
Today is also known as Grandma Moses Day. At 75, due to arthritis she gave up embroidery and started painting. She decided to sell her paintings at a local drug store for $10 where her art was discovered and an exhibit was made by a collector at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. She continued to paint until she was 101, probably completing 1,500 paintings. She said it wasn’t that painting was important, but it is important to keep busy.
I agree with Elizabeth I. The past cannot be cured. But we should learn from it and get on with the reconciliation process. How do we move forward from here?
