European culture has led us to see November as a sad, cold and dark month. However there is another way to experience this month and it is through the vivid colors and cheer of American traditions. From Mexico “Los Dias De Los Muertos”, at the beginning of the month of November, it teaches to remember the dead, not imagining it in a bitter way, but rather in a joyful way. It’s the only time of the year when they return to earth (only if their photos are on display though) and together they can share time that must be of joy and not pain. From the United States, on the other hand, comes “Thanksgiving” , the fourth Thursday of November, to learn how to give thanks for what you have had during the year. Having a moment of sharing and union!

The Snow Moon
Now the cold season is around the corner, with the heat and light declining. In more ancient times, it was the period of the snow, which covered everything with its blanket and hence the reason for this name.
Nature and the earth are preparing to retire for their long rest, while we are preparing to carry out projects and close the outstanding issues.
This is the right time to think about what people have done for us and reciprocate with a gesture of gratitude that is even a single word or a show of affection.
Letters From The Past
One of the things that most excited me in finding this little letter written in her own hand by this friend of mine was the value she gave to it.
Holding this piece in my hands, reading her words written with a half-empty pen, still manages to convey the same emotions I felt the first time I read it. Technology has wiped out much of that strength, beauty and feelings, but all is not lost. Taking a piece of paper and a pen is a simple gesture, why not do it now? Write even just a few lines and dedicate them to someone, fold the sheet and put it in an envelope and then send it… the immense gift that is given and received back isn’t imaginable.
The Artist of the Month
Description: “Cosmos” is the Universe, a complex system with its own order and its own laws, the opposite of Chaos. It’s the whole.
Cosmic was created to represent the energies that constantly work around man and how it affects her life every day, governing the matter of which she is made.
Born with colors in hand, as a real Libra, ready to draw her life.
The infinite passion she has for everything related to esotericism, the history of cultures and symbolism constantly helps her with the design of the jewels she creates: each piece is handmade in 925 silver and is born in a small laboratory with particular techniques and energy baths that give it a special identity.
