Autumn is certainly in the air. The approach of November 2017 signals that we are now moving towards the end of the year.
When we look back, we will remember the devastating wildfires that claimed the lives of many loved ones and beloved possessions. We hope that the year’s end will also conjure up the opportunities that were offered and taken to enjoy the bounty that still remains.
Here is a list of several events to consider:
Now through November 28. Writing Your Life

Now through November 30. Unraveling Threads: The Mexican Indigenous Textile Project
