Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

an altar for remembering

today is dia de los muertos.
welcoming back the dead...
at the time of year when the veil between
the spirit world and ours is the very thinnest.
paying homage to their souls and offering companionship
while they linger.

if just for a whisper of a moment...

who are you remembering today?


for other day of the dead posts, see here and here and here.

  2. This year the dominant spirit was my mom - it varies. Was fun to hear Shelby talk about organizing a dorm activity around the holiday because she so enjoys hearing stories from families. (It doesn't hurt that remembering my folks always involves sweets!)
