Hold the line! | Fuel Hope (Zündstoff Hoffnung) Project

Hi All
I hope you’re well!

This is my second submission to the” Fuel Hope (Zündstoff Hoffnung)” Project. By the way, you can find out more and enter your own submissions here. I see a lot of beautiful, hopeful, work out there. Don’t be shy. The more hope, the better.


I’ve been thinking a lot about the word, “hope” lately, thanks to Petra ;-) I’m finding I have mixed feelings about the word but I will write more on that in my next submission.

I’m a hopeful person by nature but ooohhh, I’ve had my dark days. And at present, we are in some, dark, days. But we can’t let that darkness bring us to despair. We must hold on and lift up those that are stumbling, knowing better days are ahead.

Music – creating, playing and listening has always been a great source of hope for me and I’m sure for most of you. It can take you out of yourself and focus your spirit on the positive. Find those pieces of music that work for you and fuel your hope.

Be strong; Be brave; Honor your ancestors.
Hold the line !

take care

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I always been fascinated by the moon. If you perform just minor research of the moon, you’ll find many verified anomalies. For example – Only one side of the moon faces the Earth, throughout its rotation; The orbital distance of the moon from the Earth and Sun and its effects on eclipses; The Moon’s effects on Earth tides and the creation of life, just to name a few.

If you’re interested, there are many theories in books and posted on the Internet. I’ve listed a few that you could start with below. But be careful, there is alot of lunacy out there ! lol

Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park, Uxbridge, MA.

Hi All,

I hope you’re all well!

I visited the Park in the summer, on one very hot and hazy day. It’s about 30 miles west of Boston. As you can see, it’s an extremely beautiful place with a multitude of things to do. I can’t believe I waited this long to visit.

I shot these images with a Canon 6D mkII and a Canon 20mm f2.8 lens.

Let’s take a stroll through.

waiting for the ….

Thunderclap. ;-)

Hi All,

Just a short video of the sights and sounds of the many thunderstorms we’re experiencing here in Boston, this summer. I shot it with a little Sony Action Cam. The gear available today is amazing in its compactness and quality of image. Even the output from cell phones is amazing.

The power of nature leaves me awestruck; the wind, thunderstorms, the sea, to name a few – Wow, what powerful forces that we often aren’t mindful of, until they wreak havoc in our lives.

I hope you’re all well !

Working on the Highway

Hi All !

I hope you’re well!

It’s been in the 90s ( 95F / 35C) here in Boston recently and we had our street repaved; not exactly the highway. ;-)

God bless these people for the hard work they do in extreme conditions.

DONE ;-)

I thought this song appropriate…
