Sonnet 33 – Lines 1-4

Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy. . . .

Translation

 

have witnessed many brilliant mornings as the sun makes the mountain peaks more beautiful with its regal stare, kissing the verdant meadows with its dazzling face and making dim streams golden with its heavenly chemistry.

The Safest Cars for Seniors

(…) I wasn’t able to back it up and look to see things behind me. My neck doesn’t turn as well as it used to, and my peripheral vision is not as good as it used to be, either.”

(…) There have never been so many senior drivers on the roads as there are today and their numbers are growing: in 2015, there were 50% more drivers over age 65 than there were in 1999, according to the Federal Highway Administration.

With these large numbers comes an increased need for vehicles that make driving easier while keeping seniors– and other people on America’s roads – safe. The good news is cars have never been safer than they are today. The bad news is with so many cars on the market, the process of finding the right one can be daunting.

1-26 to 5-25 – History Museum – Yazidi Community

Nebraska History Museum Exhibit to Highlight Photographer Jim Lommasson and Yazidi Community

 

“What We Carried: Lincoln” Opens January 26, 2018

Lincoln, Nebraska is currently home to the largest population of Yazidi (Yah-ZEE-dee) peoples in the United States. The Nebraska History Museum will open an exhibit highlighting the Yazidi immigration to Nebraska with a focus on the items they brought with them. What We Carried: Lincoln is a collaborative photographic storytelling project comprising the Yazidi community and photographer Jim Lommasson. The project began in early months of 2017 when Lommasson participated in an exhibit on war at the Sheldon Museum of Art in Lincoln.

Lommasson, who worked with Nebraska Mosaic, a class in the UNL College of Journalism and the Yazidi community, asked the Yazidis to share an item they brought with them on their journey from Northern Iraq to the United States.  He then created a photograph and requested that each owner write their personal reflections directly on the photograph. The project aims to present the experiences of refugees and create a platform for further discussion.

Lommasson says he hopes this exhibit helps people understand the hardships Yazidi immigrant’s experience when they leave their homes with only a handful of possessions. “I want to put us in the shoes of the refugees. Once we start asking ourselves these questions, we also start to realize what we are leaving behind. That’s the bigger picture. I hope when people view these photographs, it really puts ourselves in other people’s shoes and that’s how we can build those bridges.”

The Nebraska History Museum will present What We Carried: Lincoln January 26th, 2018 through May 25th, 2018. Museum hours are Monday through Friday 10am – 5:30pm, Saturday 1pm – 5:30pm, and closed Sundays. For more information and photographs of exhibit items, go to history.nebraska.gov/museum.
