It’s the Morning! Rise and Shine!

I’ve never given the command “rise and shine” much thought.  It was always said to me at a time when that was the last thing I wanted to do so it has negative connotations, but really, it’s a nice idea.  Rise!  Live.  Shine!  You are the sun and the stars.

I pass by this store most days.  I love Mexican Day of the Dead art.  I don’t want to actually own any, I do not want to accumulate any more stuff, I’ve gotten to that point in life where I’m just sick of having stuff unless it’s something I need (exceptions: clothes and earrings).  But I enjoy looking at it in the window.
