día de muertos

Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that will be celebrated today in Terlingua. There will be a parade and gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember those who have died and to support them in their spiritual journeys.

People go to to the cemetery to be with the souls of the departed and build altars containing the favorite foods and beverages—as well as photos and memorabilia—of the departed. The intent is to encourage visits to the living by their souls, and to hear prayers and comments which are directed to them. Celebrations can take on a humorous tone, as the living remember funny events and stories about the departed.

Maybe I will drive down to the cemetery in the Ghost Town to see the observances, maybe I won’t. It will depend on how I physically feel and how my money supply is holding out this month. Such are the constraints on we the living.
