You can let fear embrace you in an uncomfortable warmth, until it loses its feathers and covers you in false death. Or you can ride your fear. Let it take you to the center of your dreams where safety is a perfect mirage not too far ahead. But remember to let go when nothing makes sense...and be still for longer than you can stand. And watch as the undiscovered colors mold and meld into stories. Sooner or later you'll look back and realize that... you've lived. Fear is just a parked car in the home of the loved and lived.
On this day, Día de los Angelitos, we honor our beloved children that have physically left us, those born and unborn. It’s on this day that we celebrate their eternal wing, and as they stay with us in spirit we feel their love and the trail of hope that follows them.
In this crazy world, the truth is this place would be better with them in it, and if all of us were forever children…
“Think of your child, then, not as dead, but as living; not as a flower that has withered, but as one that is transplanted, and touched by a Divine hand, is blooming in richer colors and sweeter shades than those of earth.” -Richard Hooker
