Welcome September - Bienvenido Septiembre

Reflections by Maritza Martínez Mejía
Fall is almost near and the last quarter of this year is around the corner. It is time to revise those goals of the beginning of the year and finish some of them. Have perseverance and most of all trust in you. 
                   
                  Blessings and Happy September!

 


El otoño está cerca y el último cuatrimestre del año a la vuelta de la esquina. Es tiempo de revisar esas metas de inicio de año y culminar con algunas de ellas. Ten perseverancia y sobre todo fe en ti. 
¡Bendiciones y Feliz Septiembre!

What is Luz Del Mes Tri-Anthology? ~¿Qué es Luz De Mes Tri-Anthology?

For generations, stories and traditions were transmitted orally, and with the invention of writing, those stories were part of the family culture. Dissociating ourselves from our roots is contrary to the nature of being. I truly believe, we all are interconnected with humanity. For this reason, I organized a multicultural chain of authors in honor of nature, unite with a literary empathy through the simplicity and deep message of a Haiku.
This project is called "Luz Del Mes Tri-Anthology" that comes to bring light and unite three languages and cultures: English, Greek and Spanish.
I  have worked countless hours with an amazing team of 30 authors, editors, translators, prologist, web and graphic designer to make this dream a reality. I will introduce the amazing team of authors in September, 2019 and launch the digital version of this Anthology on my birthday, October 21st as a gift for nature and peace.

LuzDelMes Motto/Formula: Nature + Productivity + Collaboration = Peace. 

                        LuzDelMes fórmula: Naturaleza + Productividad + Colaboración = Paz.

Por generaciones, se transmitieron cuentos y tradiciones en forma oral, y con la invención de la escritura, esas historias formaron parte de la cultural familiar. Desvincularnos de nuestras raíces es contrario a la naturaleza del ser. Realmente creo, que todos estamos inter-conectados con la humanidad. Por esta razón, organicé una cadena multicultural de autores en honor a la naturaleza, unidos en una empatía literaria a través de la simplicidad y profundo mensaje de un HAIKU.
Este proyecto se llama "Luz Del Mes Tri-Anthology" para traer luz  y  unir tres idiomas y culturas: inglés, griego y español.
He trabajado innumerables horas con un increíble equipo de 30 autores, editores, traductores, diseñadores de web y gráficos para hacer realidad este sueño. Presentaré el increíble equipo de autores en septiembre de 2019 y lanzaré la versión digital de esta Antología en mi cumpleaños, el 21 de octubre, como un obsequio por la naturaleza y la paz.
                  
THE CALL: A reality in progress...

LuzDelMes Tri-Anthology of poetry links North-Central-South America with Greece and Japan through a Haiku.
LuzDelMes Tri-Antología de poesía que Norte-Centro-Sudamérica con Grecia y Japón a través de un Haiku.
LuzDelMes, Τρίγλωσση Ανθολογία Ποίησης που συνδέει την Βόρεια-Κεντρική-Νότια Αμερική με την Ελλάδα και την Ιαπωνία, διαμέσω του Χαϊκού.
