We Will Pass Away

We will pass away. I, NezahualCóyotl, say, Enjoy! Do we really live on earth? Ohuaya ohuaya!

Not forever on earth, only a brief time here! Even jades fracture; even gold ruptures, even quetzal plumes tear:

Not forever on earth: only a brief time here! Ohuaya ohuaya!


-In Xochinquahuitl, by Nezahualcoyotl, from Flower Songs of Nezahualcoyotl



The excellent CGI Student Academy Gold Medal Winner for Short Film was the inspiration for this photo, as well as the art of the incredible artist T.W. Rutledge. If you haven’t seen this video, take the time to watch it, especially if you want to know more about what El Día de los Muertos is all about. Rucy Byron’s wonderful Los Muertos skeleton gacha at Wayward Halloween provided my joyful, dancing Muerta.
