When the year too dies

Walking through Bacio

Tonight, to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, my family sat around at dinner and told stories of our lost grandmothers. I remembered mine, and my husband remembered his, and then my kid piped up. "Mama. What about our cat's relatives? Who was her mother?" We fell into a guilty silence. "That's okay. I'll be her relative," the kid said, saving us. Whew.

Here's my avatar taking a contemplative walk through the forests of Bacio, enjoying the peace of an early Autumn day. I've got on a new outfit from Ingenue -- the Aquarellist blouse and Cara pants -- and I'm also wearing a necklace in honor of the day by Lolapop!. (I managed to find a few necklaces for 10L each in little grave candles in Lola's shop -- she was kind enough to make a little hunt in honor of the day.) So here's to remembering the dead, and smiling at the memories!
