Día de los Muertos

November 1, the Day of the Dead, has always been a special day for me. Unlike some folks who may shy away from death and all its accoutrements, I’ve never been one to be uncomfortable by the topic, less so when many people I love have passed into the shadows. For me, every day is the día de los muertos: a day to honor those gone from this life, to invite them to our dreams and to ask them to watch over those of us who still in habit this world.

My altar to the dearly departed
