We Remember

We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence.

The Bee Keeper

Bee Keeper by Ivan Kramskoy, 1872 Here is another painting by Russian portrait painter Ivan Kramskoy with a similar contemplative stare as the previous two posts.

Somewhere From Here

I love this image with its allusions to a wintery night. The image is from the cover of guitarist Peter Janson’s CD Somewhere from Here. (By the way, a CD that I most highly recommend.) It is most likely painted by his wife Bernadette Levasseur.

A New Religion

As an iHermit, I minimize my time on the internet, but I still visit a couple sites like PostSecret. This postcard was posted last week: The emailed comment posted underneath this postcard says: I believe that a new religion could be based on this single postcard. It is a crying shame that we have distorted […]
