“Wandering spirits”


Description from Asia: When I was growing up October 31 was the day to go and visit the graves of the loved ones, we would tidy them up and bring wreaths, flowers and candles that will be lit at sundown. I will not be able to visit their graves this year,but my thoughts will be with them as always.

    We have the same custom, Asia. And we also place new flowers on the graves. Your splash of color from the raspberry quartz reminds me of those fresh flowers. :-)
    A very beautiful pick! Thank you for the memory!
