The Day of the Dead

Photo taken by the author. Artist of this pumpkin carving is also the author.

My mumma passed away a year ago, yesterday. She was not fond of the holiday, but I love Halloween.

I love it still.

I noticed that I ‘ran out of time’ to get even a single pumpkin for carving. I’m pretty sure I didn’t want to acknowledge the day.
