In the Southwestern U.S. and Mexico, we celebrate Dia de Muertos, the Day of the Dead (November 1). I like to build a shrine as I think about the beloved ones who are gone now. In this shrine-building, I was bringing to mind Ben Boynton–my dad–and David Graeper, excellent being and father of my son, Greg. I also wished happy afterlife to Russell Bradley, father of my husband, Jon Bradley and other excellent friends and life companions on the Other Side. Such good therapy for the heart–shrine-building.
And the Vampire Grandmas taught me how to do it! You can do it too. Ruth Leslie would say, “Go ahead; get busy.”
