    I cant find a comment box on your latest article, Rebecca, so am leaving my comment here:
    I love the photos and the thought-provoking words. I’m reminded of the words of William Henry Davies: “A poor life this if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.” Lovely to have you back, my dear friend. β™₯

    Dear Rebecca,
    well, well, “nothing has changed” isn`t that a bit pessimitic? Isn`t it great that we don`t live like in the middle ages any more, for example? That – at least we Europeans don`t have wars all the time anymore? I see it differntly that quite a lot has changed – for the better and for the worst as well. The zeitgeist is never resting as Hegel wrote in his philosophy.
    With a big hug and have a great weekend

      How well said, my dear friend. I have enjoyed reading a little more about the lives of artists because it says so much about their creative output. I come from a very different background that looks for objective and concrete analysis. Here is a video that provides a different perspective of change and transition – hope you like it. Have a great weekend – sunshine is still in Vancouver!!!

        Dear Rebecca,
        thanks for the video, it`s really well done. Historically seen 200 years is all modern times. In Europe and especially in England f.e. to live in a house that`s 200 years old it`s nothing special, actually is not seen as very old. Nevertheless the changes in the last 200 years are quite impressive.
        Thank you so much for sharing this well done video of Hans Rosling.
        The sun is shining at the Norfolk coast as well.I will disappear to the garden.
        Love from Cley next the Sea
        your friend Klausbernd

        Hugs coming back your way – so glad that you liked the video. When I took a statistics course, I realized that decisions are usually based on emotional data, rather than objective analysis. But then, numbers, like emotions, can always be manipulated. My son, on our first visit to Europe mentioned to a museum guide, that the furniture/chairs that were displayed, were made before Canada was a nation….
