This memory of BEing part of the whole, in helping carrying the weight of so very poignant. Together we will all carry the memories..shared and passed from one to the other in our own tradition.

What an incredible experience that had to have been. No wonder you are so drawn to Dia de los Muertos, Rebecca. The photos and the words are so inspiring.

How beautiful your images are...and the story you tell about the intimate way in which the people carry out and share their traditions.

Interesting that we both posted about our time and experiences in the cemetery with Delores Porras and her family. I think that was the definitive time in Oaxaca when I was changed forever...

OMG-it is as though I felt the earth move. You have captured the heart, the spirit, the soul, the very essence of what it must be like to feel this experience first hand. And, brought to those who know little about the celebration of All Soul's Day (or, Dia de los Muertos) in a manner where, anyone with reason, could easily 'connect the dots' and 'get it' as to what this celebration is. And, that it is not limited by culture or religion. It is a connection that we all need to make as human beings.

I love your post. I felt like I was walking with you into the church and the person's home. I have truly enjoyed the experience of Dia de Bloglandia.


I forgot to say, I love the photograph of the family at the grave. His expression is wonderful.


I think its all been said. I could see it and feel it all.


This is a sacred and beautiful post redolent with the incense of holy love and honor and rich with the beauty of cultural traditions that tie those living in one dimension to those who have moved on into another. Thank you for sharing such a lush and numinous experience with us. You have made us present with you in this place both timeless and timebound. Beautiful.

dear Rebecca - a beautiful post - one that I will return to a little later to savour deeply.. I am struggling with celebrating the day of the dead as we are going into springtime in my part of the world..but later today or tomorrow, I will share some honouring of ancestors of my land

I loved especially the vision of just candles and incense.. oh how I wish it were possible to come and walk this with you in real life!

Miss Robyn

ps: why is it that your posts always have me weeping with longing? not sure.

Miss Robyn

no marigolds... but a post that shows some of our ancestry here in Australia
