“Liberation Day is a Portuguese public holiday celebrated every April 25th, commemorating the overthrow on that day, in 1974, of the dictatorial Estado Novo (New State) fascist government. The holiday is also sometimes called “Freedom Day” or “Liberty Day”.”

“Liberation Day is a celebration of the coming of freedom and the end of dictatorship in Portugal. There are many events to attend, especially in the Algarve region at Portugal’s southern tip.”

“Most Portuguese celebrate Liberation Day with street parties, festive family meals, and feasting on traditional Portuguese foods. The street parties may also show patriotic films, like The Capitans of April and have comedic acts and live folk music performances.”

This past November 2018 I took part in the Nibvember 2018 Challenge.  Day 27 prompt was Lettering and I came up with the design below.  It’s easy to see where my inspiration came from as I’d participated in the A to Z Challenge in 2016. So, feeling the call to try once again for A To Z Challenge 2019, I decided to sign up for this years using this design as my inspiration.

Me in the Middle of #atozchallenge 2016 ~ Letter L ~ Reblog

Last year, in the middle of April, I was well on my way to completing the A to Z Challenge 2016!

At this point the A to Z 2017 bloggers are gaining confidence that they’re going to make it to the end. I can’t help but be with them in spirit as I follow along and visit some of their websites.  (Cresting the Hill~of MidlifeThe Chaotic Soul,  Plucking of My HeartstringsSharon Cathcart, The Artistic ChristianThe Doglady’s DenOutside PerceptionHopes and Dreams , Iain Kelly, Shirley Corder, Tossing It Out)

It was this poem aboutLetting Go, written by a friend of mine, that inspired my sketch. It spoke to me of the process that we need to go through when traumatic events come into our lives and knock us off our course.
