Signs of the Time
I am playing around with a mask from Mexico. Sorta both Halloween, when we mask ourselves and transform into something else, and a nod for the Day of the Dead with the skeleton mask.
Hallowmas, a pagan holy day/night (Oct 31) and Nov 1 and 2, the Day of the Dead share roots in our human past. In the language of initiation, time to journey to the underworld, the inner self, to discover new riches inside. And time to reconnect with one's ancestors, family and clan members living in the spirit realm. And here in el norte heading into the dark time of winter.
