Here where I live, today and tomorrow are days of celebration. Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead (All Saint’s Day on November 1 and All Soul’s Day on November 2) honors friends and family members who have died. In the past, some people have told me that it seems morbid to celebrate death, but what is actually being honored are the lives of those who have already passed. It’s a time to remember, and once again be with, those loved ones who are now with us only in spirit.
Every year, we set up a remembrance table in our dining room to welcome those who have departed. This year’s table, shown above, is dedicated to those who were close to us who passed away this past year: my infant niece Arya Esperanza, my grandmother Maria, and our companion dog Lily.
Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!
