DAY OF THE DEAD CELEBRATION

I love the whole idea of Day of the Dead. I love the thought that those that have passed on are celebrated and remembered.
I love this picture of a little grave I found in a grave yard. It was so old I couldn't even find any inscription when I rubbed my fingers over the stone. My brain goes into overdrive thinking of stories about this grave site.
So, take a moment today and tomorrow to remember those that have passed on to another journey. Celebrate their lives here on this planet. Remember it's an experience of lessons and learning how to love, forgive, compassion and peace.

  4. Wow, thank you Elizabeth. My first award. That's cool. I haven't got the foggiest idea how to put it on my blog though. :(
    It is like a Gadget? :)Bea

  5. Bea, today, being All Saints Day, I heard of a book called Balcony People by Joyce Landorf Heatherley. Have you heard of it? I thought it a book I would want to read and you too if you haven't already.

  6. I am fascinated by old graveyards, and the interesting stories that they tell. There is the mother and father, with 10 headstones for babies - you just wonder where they got the strength to keep going. Then there is the one with mother, father and second wife, put in by the kids with love. So interesting.

  8. Mim, I have a couple of cool photos from that same graveyard. I'll be happy to post them in Picasso and you can download them if you want to use them in your art. :)Bea

  9. What an interesting little gravestone. So small too, as if it is for a child. Who knows? Another excellent post.

  10. You have a compassion to reach out and touch those who don't even know that they need you. Simply stated and yet so eloquent! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen
