Another Day of the Dead has passed. A visit to the graves, handling the touchstones that remind us of those passed.
I was raised in a culture very different than where I live now. I never connected to the way I was taught to deal with loss and death; never felt like there was a proper salve for the wound. Since moving to New Mexico I have embraced this particular sacred day. It sits well with my heart.
I am blessed to be part of a community that has welcomed me and mine with open arms. A community that has never held me at arms length, punishing me for the color of my skin (or the lack of pigment therein). No one has squawked "Cultural Appropriation" and asked me to leave.
I love this place! The sunrises, the quite, the dusk, the food, the desert itself, but most of all I love that I found a place that is as welcoming and laid back as the place I left behind

I'd say farewell, but I don't wish you well. You have been a shitty year and I don't regret telling you so.
You were filled with friends and customers losing jobs, friend businesses going out of business, 3 deaths in my family, loss of friends and family, a shitty economy, and a general malaise.
I won't ask much of you, but lets see if we can't do better this time.
Everyone have a safe and Happy New Year and lets rock 2011!

Sorry to anyone who has had trouble with our technology lately! In short, it has sucked!
But... (duh duh daaaaa) the phones are back up AND the website is getting a LONG overdue sprucing up. So if you are shopping online and things go funny, just give the zombies a minute and reload. They will be hammering away on the keys to make shopping easier for everybody!

"Do people shop here?" (nope. we are just for show)
"Do a lot of people shop here?" (well, its no GAP...but we are still open so that implies some business)
"Why haven't I heard of this place?" (um, we've all been keeping it a secret from you!)
