We visited candle makers and weavers in Teotitlan Del Valle today. It seems like everyone who lives there is an artist.

The sky was its own work of art.

I watched the clouds shift and the light change. Within a few seconds of one another, two hearts appeared in the clouds.
Later we stopped at a nearby cemetery to observe the preparations for Day of the Dead. People were cleaning off the graves and beginning to decorate, but they welcomed us. A few of us struck up a conversation with a couple. He had lived in Santa Barbara, California but returned to his town after a few years.
Back at the Casa, we tested out our altar.
