Israel Stands Still (Randyjw; April 22, 2017)


Israel stands still

when the siren sounds across the land

recalling the fallen

the never again

You are not forgotten

but remembered again




Siren of Rehovot, Israel (2012):






I Am poem – Anne Frank

by Natasha Hashemi and Claire Hawer






Eli Atah – Shlomo Gronich and the Sheba Choir

The Nautilus

Nautilus And Heart (Randyjw; March 13, 2017)



The Nautilus (Randyjw; March 13, 2017)


The nautilus resembles the human heart

comprised of chambers in its connecting parts

developing the shell to protect its inner motion

swimming in the depths of vast and deeply salted oceans

Blogger Recognition Award



Blogger Recognition Award (Randyjw; September 29, 2016)



I’m honored to receive the Blogger Recognition Award from Cecilia, at The Static Food Bin. Contrary to the name of her blog, Cecilia is a dynamic woman, propelling herself, and others, toward success through a sense of steadfast motivation and energy to achieve ever more. I’m particular to the way she spends much time with her brother — family should always be a priority, and never taken for granted. Thank you, Cecilia, for being a caring, kind, and thoughtful person on the planet Earth, and also for your nomination.


You can view her website at this link, here:



And now, with an award, comes some rules. And these are:


1. Write a post to show your award

2. Give a brief story of how your blog started

3. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers

4. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog

5. Select a few other blogs you want to give the award


A1. I have created new artwork corresponding with the awards I’ve been given, or altered pre-existing artwork from the blogosphere; I’ll try to create something new for this one, as well. I’m running low on print space for my photos, so I hope I can add it. That’s how Cecilia and I connected, in the first place — so, it’s only fitting!


A2. My blog began because I could no longer resist the urge to be published. It has inspired me to keep creating, and has been an enjoyed commitment to continue expanding into the creative environment.


A3. Some advice for new bloggers would be to observe, without comment, the community and social etiquette norms within it. I’d also advise to be kind and try to help lift one another up. Why not help to promote others’ work, such as with these awards? Isn’t that what many wish for ourselves?


A4. Thank you, Cecilia! See her link, above.


A5. My nominees, in turn, are:
