Day of the Dead

Today is a personal memorial day of sorts for me, a sad anniversary. Coincidentally enough it is also the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, and so today, if only mentally, I am doing a little celebrating along with a little mourning, and if nothing else, a little remembering. Some cultures think our world is closest to the spirit world at this time of year and that is why we celebrate Halloween or All Saint's Day or Samhain or el Dia de los Muertos or whatever. I do not know if this is true, no signs this year, nor the last. Maybe some spirits just never come back once they've finished lingering.
