November Rain, this song keeps playing in my mind, Guns n' Roses, who would ever forgot this famous band who once rule the field of rock music. Anyway, the post was entitled "November Rain" not for the reason of a love story just like the GnR's lyrics of November Rain, but for my reason, which is November's first rainfall, which exactly happened on All Saint's Day. Well that's not wierd.

November 1 - Everybody is busy, other's brought flowers, and others for food. Everybody will be celebrating their Halloween season. Visiting to their departed loved ones.

Leaving Gensan for the All-Souls Day

I woke up with those teary eyes, overnight-bulging eyes. I was blogging the previous night. As usual, I wash the car to complete my weekend routines. Later that day, we prepared for the 30-minute travel to my grandma's home. It was so nice knowing that i'll be visiting again the childhood memories I left in that cozy place.

Along the way, Silhouttes and the lonely sunset

While travelling, raindrops started to fall, not the usual, heavy, disturbing rain we used to experience, but the silent yet sensitive raindrops, as if it was singing along with the all-saints day. Everybody on the streets are walking towards the cemetery, yet finds comfort with their companions in walking. While it was still a view for the sun setting over the horizon, I got the chance to capture its brightly colored sunrays.

Arriving at the memorial garden, I notice that there are only few people visiting compare to last year's population. My grandfather's been dead for 8 years, and I still can recall the memories he shared with us. We lit candles and later on, we left with a presence and ended the night bidding goodbyes for the night.
