Sunday Scenes – January 12, 2014

The Lake Isle Of Innisfree

I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

-William Butler Yeats

bridge

“Let every man praise the bridge that carries him over”
-English Proverb

benches

Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us. We need hours of aimless wandering or spates of time sitting on park benches, observing the mysterious world of ants and the canopy of treetops.
-Maya Angelou

I reviewed Who By Fire, by Diana Spechler, this week.

I posted two photographs taken at the local lake.

Visit Zivah to see her thoughts on this week’s parashah.

Perfection itself is imperfection.
-Vladimir Horowitz

My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.
-Mahatma Gandhi

A good garden may have some weeds.
-Thomas Fuller

You just have to learn not to care about the dust mites under the beds.
-Margaret Mead

Lakeside and Birds

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable.

I have finished reading The Innocents.

I am currently reading We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust. I am also reading the novel Orphan Train.

I have slowly returned to my normal routines. I still listen to the news, or read it online, but it doesn’t take up the majority of my day. Life seems to have somewhat returned to downtown Boston, too, on the block where the tragic events occurred. I give the people of the city credit for moving forward as best as they can, and staying strong, Boston strong! My prayers are a constant.

I managed a walk at the lake. The photographs above were taken during it.

Sorry for the update…my photographs were not shown correctly.

The Other Son
, sounds like an extremely thought-provoking and compelling film, encompassing conflict, in varied forms.

Read about Steven Spielberg and his childhood filled with bullying.
