This was taken back in 1977, and is a film scan of 28 year old, not taken care of the best, negatives.
This first one shows me and my wife, in South Korea (I was in the Army) making an offering to her deceased mother, at her mothers grave. Don't remember much more than that, but it was a food offering.

This second one shows the family members (minus myself who was taking the picture) partaking of the offering after.

Fofa,

This is one of the areas I wished individuals would submit. Food carries so much more than nutrition.

Some forty years ago I saw a joke in the Reader's Digest which has stuck in my mind ever since. An oriental family leaves some food by the grave of their ancestor and a nearby bystander who is leaving flowers at his family grave insensitvely asks, when do you think your ancestors will be eating this offering? The family responds, the same time yours smells your flowers.

Aloha
