Today, the air will hang especially still. If you let your eyes fall shut, if you listen closely, you will hear the whispers of ghosts.
Today, as you paint your faces with ash and charcoal, as you streak colors down your neck and limbs, send them love. In the bonfires, see their eyes, remember how they sparked in life. As you dance and raise your voice in song tonight, let yourself be filled with passion. This is how we celebrate and honor those who have left us. May their shadows roam the desert once again, may their memories live on within us.
