I’ve been thinking about the folks I’ve lost in the last 6 months. Several have left the party too soon.
I started a Ring-A-Day project and wanted to share the importance of those who’s shoulders I stand upon. I’m not Mexican, so Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead may not be something from my culture, but November 1st (All Saint’s Day) and November 2nd (All Souls Day) have always resonated with me being born near these important international holidays recognizing the people who made each of us possible.
I carve this ring thinking of marigolds in the eyes of each of my family members who have helped shape me.
