dia de los muertos

dia de los muertos

Someday, I hope to make it to Mexico City for their day of the dead celebration. It looks like it would be an amazing thing to see in the flesh. To see those without any.

Until then, Chicago's National Museum of Mexican Art will do. Which is where we purchased this display a year or two ago. I'm not even sure what to call this thing. A sad consolation for not being in Mexico this very minute, would be a fitting name.

Love the image. And if you go to Mexico for Day of the Dead, don't go to Mexico City. Go to Oaxaca.

Actually I want to go to Merida with Julieana and Carolina - maybe next year.

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
