Advice From a River:
“Go with the flow
Slow down and meander
Be thoughtful of those downstream
Go around the obstacles
Immerse yourself in nature
The beauty is in the journey!”
~ Ilan Shamir
For Lens-Artists Challenge: A River Runs Through It
The Rhine River from Marksburg Castle in Braubach, Germany
The Windmills at Kinderdijk on the Lek River in The Netherlands
The Southwark Bridge over the River Thames in London, UK
The Railroad Bridge over the Muskingum River in Zanesville, Ohio
The world is drenched in panic and fear
like a ship on a stormy sea
desperately trying to stay afloat
amid wave after wave of debris
Tread with care through the turbulent ocean
Drown not in the depths of despair
The sun will shine on calmer waters
Smooth sailing soon will prevail

How did they do it? How did they build the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe without the help of modern-day tools and equipment? In Medieval times, it was a complex process involving an assembly line of common laborers, experienced builders and skilled craftsmen; materials such as stone, iron and wood; experimentation and innovation; and time! Lots and lots of time—in some cases, hundreds and hundreds of years!
The Cologne Cathedral in Germany is an impressive architectural masterpiece. As the third tallest church in the world, it is described by the UNESCO organization as an “exceptional work of human creative genius”.

Red is an emotional color. It means love, hate and many things in-between. It awakens passion, excitement and our will to survive. It is energizing! Red can also make an old stone structure come to life when used as an accent color on a door or a window. It encourages the passer-by to take notice and bids them to come inside… so we did!
