Even though it’s 不行 (bùxíng) these days to talk about Columbus Day, I was raised on it. October 12 we remember him; I respect the man. No disrespect meant to any Native Americans or First Nation people; I don’t know what they call the holiday now and I respect their claim that this land didn’t exactly need to be discovered, but I’m glad we others got to come here.

The first pattern I designed on 12 Oct I called “Santa Maria,” which is funny because I was watching Death in Paradise at the time which takes place on the isle of Saint Marie.
