Sea Scenic

into sea

From Ecclesiastes-Chapter 1, in the Jewish Bible:

All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place where the rivers flow, there they repeatedly go.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day

yahrzeit

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It is also the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Excerpts from “Oswiecim” (“Auschwitz”), silent film footage taken beginning January 27, 1945.

To all those who came before me, whose blood courses through my veins, whose DNA lives on in me, my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, I want to thank you for BEING. I may never have met you, but I know OF you. I know you through traditions, stories handed down, through genealogical research, through an innateness that allows me to perceive who you were and who you stood for. I know you because my Jewish heart swells with joy, with sorrow and sobs, with love for you, and with sentiments I treasure and hold dear.

My ancestral tree proudly links you on branches. The tree of life of my familial leaves display you with pride and honor. You are all a part of my past, my present, my future.

Your lives are not forgotten. Your lives live on in my prayers, and in my soul.

Ironically, rural America has become viewed by a growing number of Americans as having a higher quality of life not because of what it has, but rather because of what it does not have! ~Don A. Dillman

Deer Photograph

I will stick to photographing deer, if and when I come upon one or more in the future. For me, they are one of nature’s most lovely animals.

I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her. -Ellen DeGeneres
