[Above, Tom just missed the Days of the Dead, but a few displays were left. Taking place on November 1st and 2nd, the holiday follows on the heels of Halloween in the U.S., but the themes of the two celebrations are exact opposites. Instead of the dead coming back to haunt us, they come back to party. People invite their departed loved ones to sit down, eat, drink, and share in a family gathering.]
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
