Dia De Los Muertos

The wind gently chills the air, which is redolent and heavy with things unique to this day...one for the dead. Autumn leaves, wild roses, smoke from the occasional cigar smoker or tequila drinker. A bouquet of bright chrysanthemums and marigolds and hovering above it all while the copalli burns, carrying prayers and messages through the veil.
