Latvian word “Novembra lieti” means “November Rains” – a form of Novembris from the Latin novem (nine) – the ninth month in the Roman calendar. The figure, I presume, is Feronia, Roman goddess of wild life, freedom, fertility, health and abundance.
Duluth, Minnesota artist, Jon Hinkel has organized our annual calendar exchange for 2017 and 2018. Hinkel added a second 2018 exchange calendar that will find its way all current members with the Autumn 2017 Block & Burin (bundle) mailing!! I do believe there is enough interest to expand this exchange project even more for 2019 – stay tuned. Thank you Jon!
