Phoebe’s post for dia de los muertos today.

For me, watching my students´ performance of “The Skeleton Woman” at the English show in Futa on Tuesday was a wonderful way to celebrate the Day of the Dead. It was really beautiful to watch one of my mom´s favorite stories, a symbol of the life and death cycle and of true love, acted out in front of me by a wonderful group of kids. I will post pictures as soon as I have them.

soon the wheat flared up
punctuated by red flowers like burns,
then autumn arrived to set down
