dia de los muertos and spirits

03 November, 2010


yesterday when i was making my way to vote and gather things for my dia de los muertos bike altar, i made a stop to a local shop to buy sage and candles. the owner and i got to talking about my altar that led to my family history: a curandera grandmother and native Chumash Indian great grandmother. she told me at the end of our conversation that i had something great in me that i was blessed with, she felt it. i'm not a spiritual or religious person but i am superstitious as a result in growing up in a catholic family, and when i saw this photo posted i noticed a shadow in the shape of a heart above the basket. i thought maybe it's just the road but maybe this is my grandmother's way of visiting me? i don't know but perhaps the shop lady is saying the truth, maybe there is something with me.

i have a lot of pictures i want to share from the dia de los muertos procession but those will come later.
