It is Day of the Dead. My celebration consisted solely of a chocolate bar with Mexican chilis, hardly fitting, but all I seem to be capable of at this time. I feel rather like the walking dead today, even though Halloween was an early night, as there were only three groups of happy trick-or-treaters; apparently everyone tried to get through during the extra hour of daylight this year. I am committed to getting back on track this month, somehow, with general discipline and specifically the daily writing, or at the very least the daily meditations on the world around me.
