Celebrating a life

There are a number of "Catholic" stories in this morning's Times, but what caught my eye most was the photo accompanying this story about Ghanaian-American funerals. It's a picture of a very little boy dancing, grinning, his eyes screwed shut with glee: an excellent capture by photographer Batrice de Ga of a lovely moment. Almost makes me want to go to a funeral. The whole slide show of images is worth a look -- another colorful side of NYC.
