I was having dinner with a friend, who was saying everything was pretty good, but… “It’s October,” I said. “People die in October.” “Yes,” she said, “that’s it.” In her family and my family, that’s been true.
Around this time of year, I like to share some of my Dia de los Muertos shrines. If you haven’t seen them before, there’s a post here: http://creativetexturetools.com/news
The Art Bead Scene Carnival folks this month are talking about remembrance, you can find those here: http://artbeadscene.blogspot.com.
(If you’re wondering why I’m not participating in that carnival, by the way, it’s because there are two groups, each one participates every other month.)
