Day of the Dead

Fern O'Brien as painted by Mary Guggenheim. This Day of the Dead post is simply in loving memory of two extraordinary women who made a huge impact on my life and many other people's, as well. They were smart, creative, outspoken, always curious and fiercely in love with what the world had to offer. My life was greatly enriched by knowing them.

 In fact, their influence in literature, art, theater, travel and good food is with me still. What a legacy, is it not, to bring wonder into some one's life, to spark new ideas, to open doors to places of discovery?

So this post is made with gratitude and love.

Beautiful. We made an altar for our loved ones as well. Day of the Dead is a fine tradition. Little did we know that G'ma Ruth would soon join the ancestors.

Thank you, Donna. It is a fine tradition. My thoughts are with you and Ruth.
