What feelings or thoughts arise when you look at these altars?
Some of these pieces honored young people, grandparents, pets, or notable people in history. It was amazing to be a part of their story. The altars were seen by hundreds of people in the park last night.. I had to squeeze my way past the crowd just to get out!
I was inspired, moved, and so glad I ventured into town to participate.
I look forward to creating my own altar at our Campa Creatives party next weekend!
