Birthdays and Death Days

Sunset 7:30 PM San Francisco, CA

From the time I was young, my grandmother told me that March was the bad luck month in our family. Everybody died in March, or so she said. As it turned out, my mother was born on this day in 1933. 3-30-33. Her father died on her birthday a few years before she herself passed away. I have a little altar with photos and assorted statues, tools and tchotchkes from family and friends who are no longer alive. I wanted to include them in this evening’s ringing and share the photo for the update this week.
