Honoring Maestro Vaticano Soto Brigham

By: Liz Soto Brigham

After returning from a pilgrimage to Vatican City, Liz Soto Brigham received a Christmas present that changed her world perspective. Maestro, a holiday gift from years past died in March. "The little guy taught me that everything can be redone, repurchased or replaced," she said, after placing jasmine at the base of several bamboo columns — a plant in her backyard that Maestro enjoyed playing in. The altar incorporates all the elements of Maestro's recipe for life. The altar has gifts of thanks to all those who knew Maestro. With an array of twinkling lights representing angels in heaven flickering, Brigham said, "Now he's our guardian angel."
