It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals and mournful obituaries, and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some new strange disguise.— Ralph Waldo Emerson
I was editing some photos and this one reminded me of the Emerson quote, so here it is :)

Forest Lawn in Cypress did a lovely Day of the Dead Festival/Mass. I had no idea that they did one at all. My brother used to be interred there, but was moved when my parents moved and now he lives in a closet, which is just weird to me. Never the less, I remembered him as I always do... also took a few photos but was too busy looking around to remember to take more.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
