“I grew up honoring and respecting La Muerte. She was never someone I feared but someone I saw as an energy that is part of life and part of me.” Maestra CC weaves together a reflection on her lifelong relationship with death, the Mexhika tradition of el Día de los Muertos, and her current bout with cancer.
“If nothing else, Earth wants you to pause to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, to feel the breeze, to listen to the crunch of leaves, and to remember all the past year has brought. And the years before that.” Writer and consultant Cameron Navarro encourages us to pause, grieve, and treasure each moment.
