Now that Remembrance Day is completed, what is left for Canadians to commemorate or celebrate in November? We have used up our turkey Thanksgiving leftovers long ago in October.
For those born in November, Wikipedia says that Scientific studies have found empirical evidence suggesting that November-born children are more likely to become overachievers in their own fields. Examples include: scientist Madame Curie; writers/philosophers Dostoevsky, Albert Camus, Voltaire and Mark Twain; artists Monet and Rodin; policy maker Winston Churchill; and legendary baseball player Joe DiMaggio.
For something light-hearted we can celebrate National Pomegranate Month.
I created these images using the watercolours from Shadowhouse - http://shadowhousecreations.blogspot.ca. They are eye-popping and beautiful in their own right. Here they showcase the graceful petal shapes.
