Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Cinnamon-mon-mon-mon!

The crescent artistic symbol is one of the oldest symbols known to humanity. We're talking as early as 2300 BC! It has been displayed on flags (in the US on the South Carolina state flag), in logos (Red Cross & Red Crescent), as a heraldic symbol, and appears in real life in the night sky where the moon is less than half illuminated. Yet, probably the most recognized crescent is that which is used in baking...crescent rolls, croissants and crescent shaped cookies. Get ready to bake, eat & enjoy!
