...well... the Dia de los Muertos parade and celebration was this weekend... always a good opportunity to bask in the Mexican culture... as well as a chance to take some cool photos. So... I was anxious to go... but alas... when the time came... I couldn't do it. I have somehow gotten my sleep schedule completely messed up again... and although the festivities were calling... the calls of my bed were louder and stronger.

In light of that ... I don't have any photos from the parade to show you...  but I do have a couple shots of my own offrendas of sorts... in dedication of loved ones who have passed. The photo at the top of this post is of my paternal grandmother... taken when she was about 2yrs old. The other shot is of an altar in my living room... in celebration of fall and all it's bounty.

...blessings to you and yours... those here... and those who have passed...
