  3. ghosts not to scare,, a friendly ghost..

  4. comfort indeed.
    love knows no boundaries.

  5. I am not afraid…beautiful Catrina…and that sugar skull…magnificent!

  6. I must confess…I covet that Katrina.

  7. I’m not afraid either. I am beginning to see that there is a light after that tunnel. Love your Catrina. Wonderful.

  8. What a nice display. You have done well.

  9. Whoaah just don’t visit me in my dreams yello lady hehe

  10. And because of celebrating Dios de los Muertos these past years I too have found such comfort in remembering my dearly departed ones. Death seems more like a passage than like “the end.” Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo and words.

  12. Nice display. Very colorful and interesting.

  13. We are often afraid of the things that love us most.

  14. Your Day of the Dead figures are often seen in local altars. The biggest display is always at the Oakland Museum. The display in your photo looks like kind of altar-y too.

  15. I agree with Nanka. Have a fabulous week.
