01:57:49 Katie Boyd: I have to leave but thank you all for such a wonderful event!
01:58:01 wikuki kingi: Yes – kites figure largely for our Matariki festival in Aotearoa – we create them and fly them at Matariki
01:58:17 Ken Cohen: I am delighted by the cross cultural similarities between Dia de Muertos and Qing Ming Festival in China, in which the ancestors are honored with food, ceremony, and burning of ceremonial papers to provide for beloved ancestors. As someone who speaks Chinese and married to a Mexican indigenous woman, we enjoy both cultures.
01:59:00 Parvathy Prem: Muchas gracias, Doña Maria y Dra. Isabel, and everyone in the chat! I loved this so much!
01:59:44 Craig Brownell: I loved your story of playing with the shadows directly underneath you. The idea of allowing the shaft of sunlight to reach the bottom of the well undisturbed during the solar zenith seems fitting, like the water needs illumination, perhaps even a purifying effect, from time to time. How far back in time does this tradition go?
02:01:54 Bryan Mendez: Muchisimas gracias a todos
