el dia de los muertos

Years ago when my life was less complicated I did a lot traveling throughout the US. One city that became a favorite of mine is San Antonio TX. My husband and I found a wonderful shop down by the river walk that specialized in folk art from Mexico. That folk art shop was my introduction to El Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead also known as All Saints Day, a holiday that is celebrated in Mexico on November 1st and 2nd. I am also a hoarder of Anne Choi beads, she has a couple beads and charms with sugar skulls on them that I just had to have, but of course I had to buy a few to subsidized my obsession. One thing about Anne and her work, if you don't purchase the beads when she has them on her site many times she moves onto other designs and the bead you had your eye on is no longer made... above is one of Anne's charms.

the time

The 26th of July was the last time I posted... where does time go? It's so elusive and slippery and you can never get it back... maybe I took the summer off and didn't know it.
