Mexico – Carnaval, (metamorfosis)

Parade make up SMA

Carnivales

butterfly

us.

we paint our faces

decorate our bodies with coloured music

emerge into ritual

 

we transform our selves

shedding skins we thought were us

casting our masks into fire

 

Carnivales

butterfly

us.

the Old Ones open their arms

welcome us

singing our secret names

 

we prepare our hearts

to dance with the spirits

of the sun

~~~~~~

  1. Are you now visiting Mexico for a short stay ? I recently purchased 100 six inch skeletons and ordered doll sombreros and cowboy hats to experiment with some Dia de los Muertos diorama type things. I will have to make clothes, instruments and paint background stuff but right now still making small WW 1 model airplanes kits.

  2. Dear Carl, you never cease to amaze! WW1 airplanes to Dia de los Muertos dioramas! Quite the transition but then again maybe not.
    I was in Mexico again this past winter but now very much back in Vancouver.
    Thanks for dropping by.
