IN MEMORY OF FRED BUCK

Debbie Clarke shares a beautiful prayer in memory of Fred Buck ~

A Litany of Remembrance

Poem by Rabbi Sylvan Kamens and Rabbi Jack Riemer

In the rising of the sun and in its going down,
we remember them.
In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,
we remember them.
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring,
we remember them.
In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer,
we remember them.
In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn,
we remember them.
In the beginning of the year and when it ends,
we remember them.
When we are weary and in need of strength,
we remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart,
we remember them.
When we have joys we yearn to share,
we remember them.
So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us,
as we remember them.

The demonstration was fascinating.  Debbie’s creative process is very free and spontaneous – which works, I think, because she has developed great skill and has lots of talent!  She described how the some of materials she uses often change over time through interaction with each other and with the environment, so on-going change is a part of the artwork.  You can see some of the results hanging on the wall behind her. Really beautiful work!

Incidentally, these photos were all taken with my iPhone, many of them using some cool lenses I bought.  As you can see, the lenses aren’t “transparent”, in the sense that they cause some distorsion, but it’s an interesting effect. I’ll post about that later for anyone interested in exploring iPhonography…
