This Thanksgiving I spend in Florida with my family.
The weather is sunny and warm.
My favorite past time is walking, sunning, and beachcoming...and photographing!
It's been a while since I did a self portrait, and for this, I am thankful and joyful today!
come visit the JOY of others over here this day of thanks!

On this day I received an important message about changing world...one girl at a time. One girl, one woman, one family, one village...you get it right?
THE GIRL EFFECT got to me...does it get to you?
I am one lucky girl.
I have so much opportunity, supported with abundant love.
Now I just gotta figure out how to help other girls...local~global.

Today I will share with you some of my favorite scenes from Day of the Dead celebrations in San Miguel.
We arrived in time to immerse ourselves in pre-festival preparations where everyone was walking around with arm loads of flowers, gathering candies and candles, building altars and painting faces.
The cemetery was all a buzz with families bringing life to the quiet places of rest....painting the old, watering the new, refreshing the concrete and adorning with gifts of personal recognition. The marigolds were piled high to light the way of their loved ones spirits, and the aroma was a beacon to direct them to their own party. You see, Dias de los Muertos holiday it is an invitation for the passed loved ones to return to our Earthly place that we may celebrate their life.
I placed a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup alongside my Daddys photo at Ruth's ofrenda where we stayed. I imagined him to arrive with the usual kitchen towel slung over his shoulder as he fried the bacon and eggs for breakfast. Yes, he was there! Next year I will bake peanut butter pies, fry some chicken and brew a pot of coffee and ask him to dance with me... something jazzy with a saxophone, I recall was his favorite!
Now won't you please join me and share your own memories of Mexico and link your current blogpost below for a Mexican Feast for the soul!
