Don’t think anyone can be any happier, that this is almost over. Always been independent and sought out what i thought was best from my point of view.
So glad not to see vitriolic postings and those massive e mails that clog up my daily mail, all because I gave a few dollars. My contribution, far less than the cost of the mailers coming to my home, time spent sending daily e-mail notices from areas I do not vote in. about how we are doomed.
I take the time to honor the women who bravely paved the way regardless of their sacrifices. To honor the women who suffered so we could live free and with rights. How far would you walk in their shoes, or your own to the nearest polling station.? Thank you all who will vote for the first time, taking the first step towards a future you envision for us all. .
The event has grown in our community from a well attended first time event, to last nights awesome turn out. Embraced by all from the City of Lake Worth Beach.
A parade from City Hall lead the way to the HATCH where authentic food vendors were ready and artisans with a variety of authentic and hand made Day of the Dead trinkets.
Kids and adults waiting in never ending lines to get their faces decorated, by the face painters on site. Many came already made up and the faces were just so beautiful down to the last detail with their costumes. Check out our area photographers who capture this event,
Tom Jonson and Shawn Moss engaged by the city. Steve Horan, and the black and white photos of Adriano Ficarelli and check everyones personal FB posts of those who attended. Great memories from last nights event at the HATCH.
The altars more authentic this year and should you have had the pleasure of viewing the film COCO you will understand the seriousness of these altars.
By artist Francisco who no longer lives in Lake Worth,
My first Year I came pretty traditional. This year it was a challenge as a friend who is visiting San Miguel Allende an artist community, also known as the most beautiful city in Mexico. She is sharing photos from Dia De Los Moertes event, (not an event) actually the whole town was out and about, as this is a Mexican Catholic tradition. I myself got educated while watching COCO as to what and why they engage in this annual event. Being of European decent i witnessed candles in the grave yards but never to the celebratory extent the Mexicans engage in. Here we just love a party!
By noon I had ideas but so late in the day. I had 2 sheets of pasteboard cost $1. 35 years old leotard that has seen better days and lots of cold weather . I cut butterflies out of scraps of paper, and left over Easter flowers. A tube of white Toothpaste priceless, from a s o s call to friend Tammy. I smelled great and minty. I used the toothpaste to paint, leg bones , hip bones on leotard carried it with me for touch ups. The inspiration came from 18 year old Freda Kahlo’s painting “Broken Column” who spent a good part of her youth in a body cast.
If it’s Thursday so YES we ride tonight. Thursday Night Peddlers
We are only about 8 weeks away from the new year. Our calendar is filling, lots of wonderful things happening in our quirky seaside town and expect to get news from not just this blog but follow FB pages by Tammy Pansa’s “Lake Worth Local” Bob Lepa’s “Lake Worth Voice” Wes Blackman writes at blogspot “Lake Worth City Limits”. Follow any of these three and you’ll be well informed.
Took a breather from blogging after what seemed a very long summer. My computer after 10 years decided it had enough. After the shock and pain wore off i found IFIX in downtown Lake Worth, yes they do electronics other than phones or cracked screens.
a yearly favorite, I did say quirky
so here we are. Things are always in flux. and if it’s possible to have an issue we will make one. We’ve lost our weekly Friday on the Plaza replaced by major monthly Block Party. Oh yes our pool is empty right now and a contentious ” issue ” Dia de los Muertes only two days away and celebrated in our city and in case you did not know the Marigold is its official flower. Photos of this event next week. Stay tuned for the usual the unusual and feel free to comment.
