Not again

Vosges, Alsace – history left back, we all have to remember why.


Dream tales on the horizon

Tall tales about life at sea, awakened with an old sailing ship on the horizon.
It was a very hard life that is romanticized in the historical light.
Numerous stories are getting better and better for each generation it is handed over.

Backdrop for imagination

The St-Just and St-Pasteur Cathedral (Narbonne Cathedral)
and the neighboring Archbishops’ Palace form a unique architectural ensemble.
Both from outside and inside.

Could be the backdrop of one of the older Alexandre Duma’s adventures.
The world famous french author hadn’t (so far as I know) any relation to Narbonne.

The never-ending story

B 12

Alsace, another view of political contest.

The worth visting Ailsa and her inspiring weekly challenge.
The challenge this week “History“.

Older men declare war, but it is the youth that must fight and die
*Herbert Hoover – US-president*

When the rich wage war, it’s the poor who die
*Jean-Paul Sartre – french philosopher*

Or the more direct version:
“When the politicians are waging a war, it’s everyone else who dies”
The history tells us clearly.
