Timothy, your post is heart breaking. Everyone sends you hugs.
I think the poor leaf needed a hug. We do have candles lit for the people who left us this year due to overdose, suicide, old age, and murder. Thanks, Gabriela.
I have candles lit too Timothy. May everyone rest in peace.
Yes. Indeed! Our kitties have settled down tonight. All’s quite on the kitty front.
So is here 🤗
I like the composition, Tim, simple and beautiful.
Simple. Poignant. Beautiful.
Thanks, Dale. Are you burning any candles tonight?
I hadn’t realised, didnt know it went until tonight. So now, I have. Thank you for reminding me.
This is quite the visual display, backed with lovely reflective words. Is beautiful, Tim.
Thanks, Jeff. Do you have candles lit?
Most welcome, Tim. Indeed, I do. 🕯
Beautifully reflective Timothy.
Thanks, Holly. Do you have candles burning for el día de los Muertos?
No, I’m not burning candles Timothy. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Certainly seems a world wide tradition especially in the Americas.
I think it’s more common in the southwest.
Yes, I’m sure it’s a tradition in south Florida among the Latinos.
It’s not a part of the Cuban culture. It’s a Mexican tradition for the most part, and that’s why it’s wide spread in the southwest.
When I lived in Germany there was All Souls Day. The graves would be covered in candles and flowers. It’s a Latin tradition here in Florida. Latinos are the majority here now, from all of south and Central America, Puerto Rico, and Panama. They observe the candlelight tradition though the young people are more westernized.
You have everyone there. We do too, plus a lot of Asians and eastern Europeans from their exoduses over the years.
We do! Lots of Canadians escaping the cold fill out beaches. Lots of German’s buy winter homes here but mostly Nee are 76% Latino. They’ve been coming since the 60’s overthrow of Batista.
Be careful with those, they just might rise up and start looking for brains.. or maybe that was Brians nevermind.
Interesting thought. Do you do el día de los Muertos out there? Thanks, Brian.
No so much here in the heartland – probably due to still trying to shake off the candy induced convulsions.
It’s a pretty big deal out here. They have sugar skulls to help induce more convulsions.
Captivating color and connection to a day of honoring and remembering.
Beautiful Timothy. It’s hard to the the last leaf! 💖💖👏
It’s difficult. Thanks, Cindy.
Indeed it is-:)-:(💕🌹
Wow. God is guiding you.
That’s powerful. Fallen. Lonely. Reflecting. Sounds like a person in their sunset days…
That’s the state of the leaf. Do you have anything like el día de los Muertos in India? Thanks, Sam.
Not that I know of. Atleast not in my region. Tomorrow, however, we have the largest festival of India- Diwali. Just a few hours more. It’s evening already. We do have a LOT of festivals, but quite different in tone and meaning from Western ones.
Beautiful and very symbolic image.
That beautiful leaf captures the essence of the day, my friend. There lies a leaf, resting gracefully and peacefully.
That it was. Thanks, Marina. Do you celebrate The Anthesteria of Dionysus? I understand that’s the Greek’s el día de los Muertos?
The Anthesteria of Dionysus… don’t laugh, I had to look that up! 😉 We do have two All Souls Days [or Saturday of the Souls] in the year but they don’t fall on the same day every year. One is the Saturday before our Halloween Sunday [in 2022, it’s February 26] and the second one is the Saturday before our Pentecost Sunday [50 days after Passover: June 11]
I rarely remember but I think now I will! 😉
It’s all so complicated. You have your Halloween to look forward to.
Not a huge fan of Halloween, however, All Souls Days, are very special.
I hear you an Halloween, and agree about All Souls Day.
And lovely. If only we had but one leaf here!!!!!
You are Leafless in Scotland? Sounds like a title for a book with no pages. Thanks, Shey.
No…. I meant aslas if only we had but one here instead of the millions that fly into the garden at this time year. till go rid of the maple so no hopefully should jsut be one session with the blower.
Ah. So you have too many leafs fro you books?
We live in a conservation area where frankly it’s beyond ridiculous in that trees dwarf houses, take light are hundreds of feet tall. IE. not maintained. that is the real problem. We just took our maple out, we had had enough of it nearly hitting the house. So this is the first year we have not spent weeks picking up leaves every day. But over the back fence is an old lay with a huge garden and her trees are a bloody pest. She has not had them trimmed since the first year we were here. However the leaves are small and will blow in a heap eventually and I will get them in one.
That’s the problem with wilderness areas and forests out here. They are not maintained, they get overgrown, and with out dry climate, breaking wind cand start a fire. Fires are devastating because of all the underbrush and dead trees that the government does not allow people to clear. We spend a small fortune having all the pesky elm trees removed from the property, but our neighbor to the south has a bunch of elm trees that need to be taken out, but she leaves them. The prior property owner lover the elms and just let them go wild. So we’ll have a bunch of little elms popping up from those trees to the south in the spring.
I think we well understand each other here. I personally love trees but you have to be sensible. I am just waiting for the first branches of the closest monster of hers to come over the big fence, then I am going to actually twist it back in. If the fence breaks then cos she does not do something about the fact the branches are growing back over her lawn, she will be getting the bill. It is no long enough to keep saying how her old git of a hubby put all these trees in and left her with them. The houses bordering this eyesore are now all being left with them. We have at least five trees and quite a few shrubs in that border, We keep them all low or the damned garden would be trashed. There was an idiot where we lived before who had this guy in nour terrace charged and fined with taking down some tree on wasteland he –the man getting the police–owned. Turned out in fact cos the stupid Fife council set moveable boundaries on this old piece of lane, the boundary was the hedge and if you cut it back then that six inches in the lane was yours. That rammy was nothing to the time that next door..well I can’t see who else it would be, paid men to come up dressed in council jackets and take down the trees blocking their view in that lane , which also belonged to that guy. The next thing we all had police at our door about it and where was the wood. I had tae tell them it was burned. The residents had all ran out and grabbed up everything. The police should not even have given it hourseroom.
You could write a tree saga. Amazing.
Gimme time. … Hell, why is it that everywhere I have lived, the police have been fetched… ?
Maybe you are a cop magnent?
What is more it has aye been over trees… well in the main…
Leaves leave sometimes.
Leaf took its leave. Thanks, Teri.
The day after can be reflective. …. Will be reflective.
It’s nice we can reflect. It’s good we do reflect. Thanks, Resa.
I like the reflection and the sparkles in the paint.
A poignant reflection…
Indeed it is. Thanks, Nancy.
Always a good time to reflect and remember. Too many souls lost this year. 🕯
It is. Thanks, Tiffany.
One single solitary leaf that says so much. Beautiful 🙏
Thanks, Miriam. Who would think it would have so much to say.
