Today is Dia de los Muertos, a major holiday in Mexico and Central American countries where the living celebrate those who have transitioned. Yesterday was Halloween and neither Ty nor I are aware of Dia de los Muertos. I get up fairly early to catch the sunrise, which is a spectacular one. It has been raining, so the ground is wet and a mist is rising off of the grass. The sun is peeking through some clouds looking like a water color painting. I pause my run as I am starting to capture a picture of this moment and I get a pretty good one. I continue with the run which is a personal best or really close to it. Sub 10 minute miles for 4.5 miles. I feel inspired this morning. When I get back from the run, I take a look at the picture more closely and notice a blue orb in the picture. Many say that orbs in photographs are the spirits of people who have transitioned coming through. I’ve seen some that are obvious specks of dust illuminated by the flash of the camera. This is not of those and I did not use the flash.
When I come back into the house I talk to Ty and she tells me that (I don’t know why) she had wanted a sign from Shayna today.
We go to church and there is Dia de los Muertos altar set up on the pulpit. That’s when we found out today is the Day of the Dead and that it is believed this time of year, these few days are when the veil is the thinnest.
