Assemblage - Back Home

This assemblage I made for my grandmother. A picture from here over a bookcover from Stefan Zweig "The fear".

My grandmother was murdered from the Nazis at the II World War. She was depressive and this wasn't good for the "pure race" they wanted.

Instead of a Christmas picture at this blog, I posted this picture to think about of all that people around the world, who have no Christmas, no peace, no food, no water.

Thanks to all wo have read my blog. I have learned to much from all of you.

Two people were very special to me this year: Mauricio Planel (elcollage) and Michelle Ward.

Merry Christmas!

Gaby - your statement reminds me of the song from 1984: Do they know it's Christmas? It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness of buying and giving at this time of year. Blessed are we to be able to celebrate and should always remember how lucky we are.

Very powerful image. Reaching across the miles to send you a Merry Christmas too.

Hi Gaby-

What a moving and fabulous piece. Really, really great. It's easy to get caught up in our own little, daily dramas and forget people who are really suffering. Thank you for this post.

I'm very grateful for the life I lead, the people in it, and know how lucky I am to be meeting people from around the world who are so caring and compassionate.

Happy Holidays to you, Gaby.

How sad, how appropriate. We should never forget the horror. Hugs to you.
