Life Is A Gift–Live In The Present–Peace Be With You!

First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others. 

 ~Thomas à Kempis 

In the last twenty months I have writen over 350 blog posts with over 110,000 views.

I wanted to learn the value of writing, research and mass communication on the internet using a blog.

After some reflection I have decided to cease writing posts for the time being to focus my time and energies elsewhere. 

In all likelihood this will be a one year sabbatical.

There are a number of writing and video projects I want to devote time and attention to including a two hour video with narration on The Impressionists.

I hope my posts have been of some value to those searching for information on a subject of interest.

Thank you for your comments and interest.

God Bless and Au Revoir  

Our lives are like a candle in the wind.

~Carl Sandburg 

At the Day of Judgment, we shall not be asked what we have read, but what we have done.

 ~Thomas à Kempis

Thomas à Kempis

Thomas à Kempis (orig. Thomas Haemerkken; Thomas Hammerlein; also Thomas Hemerken, Thomas Hämerken, Thomas van Kempen, Tomás de Kempis) (ca.1380 – 25 July 1471) was a late Medieval Catholic monk and author of The Imitation of Christ, one of the best known Christian books on devotion.

He was born at the Lower Rhine region in Kempen (Germany), County of Cleves in 1380 and died in 1471 near Zwolle in the Prince-Bishopric of Utrecht, 75 miles north of his birthplace. He was apparently (accidentally) buried alive, in that splinters were later found embedded under the fingernails of his corpse. He was denied canonization on the grounds that a saint would not fight death in this way.[1] His paternal name was Hemerken, Kleverlandish for “little hammer.” …”

“Author of the “Imitation of Christ”, born at Kempen in the Diocese of Cologne, in 1379 or 1380; died 25 July, 1471. …”

Carl Sandburg 

“Carl Sandburg (January 6, 1878 – July 22, 1967) was an American writer and editor, best known for his poetry. He won two Pulitzer Prizes, one for his poetry and another for a biography of Abraham Lincoln. H. L. Mencken called Carl Sandburg “indubitably an American in every pulse-beat.”
