Beauty Unseen

"Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears." ~ Edgar Allen Poe~

The beauty that is seldom seen often makes one oblivious to its existence. To ensure reality does not morph into disbelief we should keep reminding ourselves of all unseen beauty. I would like to focus on one such beauty that is currently being plundered and confiscated. It is sad indeed that we can only appreciate such beauty in lifeless pictures, for many of the scenes that you will see herein are only a memory of what once was. Nevertheless, I thought it valuable to share this beauty with you. What beauty am I speaking of? It is the sacred beauty of Palestine...

"Keep your faith in all beautiful things; in the sun when it is hidden, in the Spring when it is gone." ~Roy R. Gilson ~

    Salaam alaikom, your concern about palestine, as far away as you are caught my eye, and I thought I'd leave a comment.
    you know, these scenes today are in Israel, and israel is still bargaining over the little land that's left for the Palestinians, never miss a chance to confiscate more land, declare historical holy places as gov.s property, build a new settlement, demolish houses, etc
