Zozobra ("Old Man Gloom") is the name of a giant marionette effigy which is built and burned every autumn during Fiestas de Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico, usually during the second week of September. As his name suggests, he embodies gloom; by burning him, people destroy the worries and troubles of the previous year in the flames. Anyone with gloom that they need to get rid of can come by the offices of the Santa Fe Reporter in the weeks leading up to the burn to drop off slips of paper with personal gloom written on them. Many people put legal papers in the gloom box as well. At the festival the papers from the gloom box are placed at Zozobra's feet to be burned alongside him.

View from the top of La Giralda Tower. The Giralda is the bell tower of the Cathedral of Seville in Seville, Spain. It is one of the largest churches in the world and an outstanding example of the Gothic and Baroque architectural styles.

This Spring, I traveled to Spain with my Foreign Language Club, I know the "project" says to contribute a photo from where you currently live and as cliché as it my sound, I feel like a part of me still lives there although the rest of me currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I am in love with the country of Spain, the flora, the fauna, the beautiful souls and the feeling of being elated and in complete bliss. I hope to return someday soon. Until then, Visitaré por mis sueños.

In memory of all those who were lost or have lost.

I hold all of those memories and sorrows in the palm of my hand.
