Day for the Dead
The chaos of Halloween has passed and a stillness has set in. Tonight, we celebrate our loved ones on the other side. This is the first time of the season that I've allowed it to sink deep and it's left me feeling soft, peaceful...reflective. All the voices can still be heard; their perfumes smelled. They always feel close this time of year and even show up in dreams nightly. Whether it's the change of season that brings on this nostalgia or if the veil has thinned enough that my grandma really did give me that hug, I still felt it and still heard her say how good it was to see me. Flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood...you are always with me.
