January 6: The Feast of the Epiphany

I love words and epiphany (of Greek origin) is among my favorites. In a religious context, January 6 is the Feast of the Three Kings, the arrival of the Magi symbolizing that the Christ Child was revealed to the world. The tradition of making (or buying) a Three Kings’ Wreath or rosca de reyes inspired my book, The Bakery Lady: La señora de la panadería. The closeness of family is also a theme in this and a number of my books. I am blessed to have known such closeness in my own life.

As a writer, I love the notion that January 6th is a propitious day for beginning a new writing project. I am always hoping that an intriguing idea or approach will be revealed to me. Of course, I must sit still and listen.

Wishing you epiphanies in 2017.
