Una cara de un día

 "... and Fred's eyes stared without seeing, 
the ghost of his last laugh still etched upon his face."

-- J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Day of the Dead Barbie face 9-12-13

"Al vivo todo le falta, y al muerto todo le sobra." 

("For one who's alive nothing's quite enough,
while for one who's dead anything's too much.")

-- traditional Mexican Day of the Dead saying

I realize that Dia De Muertos, or "the Day of the Dead," is still a month and a half away.
But I couldn't help it.
She was there.
So was I.
There were Sharpie markers.
It happened.
We're both trying to move on.
