This Moment: Day of the Dead

Breaking the rules here to explain that my son was being contemplative in the cemetery, not mourning a loved one. He was having a quiet moment with his own thoughts.


Inspired by SouleMama {this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

    Thank you for your kind comment. We were visiting a gold rush-era cemetery in California as a way of honoring the Day of the Dead. Lucas seemed to need a moment to himself to contemplate and I snapped this shot. He is not sitting at the grave of a loved one. We are fortunate not to have lost anyone close to us. Again, thank you for your kind thoughts.
