altar de muertos.

Celebrating our loved one that are no longer with us.
This is one of my favorite holidays. We get to make an altar to honor and remember each person, we place food and drink that were their favorite, personal objects, and other tipical things like a few coins, salt, papel picado {cut paper}, pan de muerto, a glass of water, candles and, of course, lots of cempazuchitl flowers.

I wanted to post this on saturday, the day of the dead, but i got the flu and stayed in bed the whole weekend. Better late than never.

Hope you have a great monday.

Yesterday my very very good friend Rafa Saavedra died.
I am deeply sad. I can’t believe it still. I feel i will still see him in the next cultural event, party or reunion at Cham’s house. I have no other words. We’re all sad, every person that loved him, the whole city of Tijuana will miss him deeply. Without him, Tijuana wouldn’t be the same and won’t. Tijuana made him happy. He made us happy, he loved us and we loved him.
Forever in our hearts. Forever in our lives. Forever with me. I love you Rafita and i’m very happy I told you often and you knew it.

My mother in law passed away this weekend.
I am sad, deeply. I cannot find the word to express what i’m feeling and thinking.
We miss her. She will transcend with all she was, all she did for us, her family. She is in us.
We are stardust.

124 years.

Con mis primos y Abuela

Translation: Happy kids day!

I have no idea if it’s an international day of celebration or if it’s just in México, but today is a special day for every child in this country. When i was little, this was one of my favorite holidays: there wes always a celebration at school, a few gifts and lots of cake and candy! haha! What more does a kid want? Nowadays, I don’t pay much attention to these kinds of holidays although i do think about what it means to my kid. It probably is a fun day for him. I was joking with him this morning and I said to him that to celebrate today, i would only feed him candy for his meals. All candy, all day. He said no. He said he would sneak when i wasn’t watching and grab food from the fridge. I had a good laugh. He didn’t seem to think it was funny.
