Girl in Sunflower Field

In Mexico we celebrate the Day of the Dead in November 1 and November 2.  The belief is that the souls of our loved ones that have passed away, have permission once a year to come and visit with us.  Many people in Mexico will create altars dedicated to their dear ones, in the altars they will put their favorite foods and candies, some will even put their favorite vices like drinks and cigarettes.  There will also be a photo and lots of flowers and candles.  It is also a way to be reminded of our own mortality and that we create how we will be remembered.  All that to say that my mother has been in my mind this month.  One of the things she loved were sunflowers.  And she used to tell me that one time when she was little and she went up the mountain to gather wood with an uncle and his donkey, she stumbled upon this sunflower field.  She stood in the middle of those flower giants and could not ever forget them.  This is my version of that memory.
