About Me

My photo
Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Day of the Dead...or more properly Dia de los Muertos is the celebration, particularly in Mexico, of families gathering to celebrate their ancestors and helping to support their spiritual -- or through the spirit world -- journey.

The three heads shown below, which decorated the front awning of a building in downtown Sayulita, is representative of the style of the artwork associated with the Dia.

Typically celebrated October 31st through November 2nd, the Dia is a way for us to pay respect for those who have come this way before, and in many ways laid out the pathways we walk today.
