Dia De Los Muertos 2013: A Uranus Is Blue Feature Presentation

Hola~~~

I’m so excited about the newest episode of Uranus Is Blue (no pun intended) with Elizabeth Vega, The Mistress of Death. I first heard Elizabeth on the UIB internet radio show when she was spoke directly to my soul. Her interview was during a time when my community/tribe was experiencing much loss and she gave perspective and opened up dialogue that I had to that point been very uncomfortable with.

In the newest episode of UIB Elizabeth Vega discusses the origins of Dia de Los Muertos, the Mexican Day of the Dead, as she and some volunteers assemble a community altar to the ancestors.

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?

purple hair and converse. literally. the color purple taps into my emotions deeply, a dark purple can make me feel regal, like royalty. confident. a lighter purple, lavender or lilac can make me feel youthful, light, feminine. and a pair of converse, specifically Chuck Taylor all-star or one stars, on my feet make me feel like i can do anything or go anywhere. i would rather have converse on my feet  than anything!
