honoring those who have passed on; Day of the Dead



Today is the Day of the Dead and I am honoring the ones that I have loved who have passed on. Tonight I will observe a traditional Day of the Dead procession with mariachis and giant puppets. I am thinking about things that my departed loved ones taught me when they were alive about love, faith, struggle and courage.

I am leaving white flowers at the edge of the gate, that opens between worlds for my beloved mother, who left this world too young.

Tonight, I will post photos of the giant puppets.
