From Poets in Picardy by E. De Stein. He jotted down notes in the trenches from 1916-1918. He said his words were written with light-heartedness and a sense of ridiculousness through appalling conditions in the war. He said the men and humor and friendship kept him positive. These poems are precious, as are the past memories and all of our historical records and notes from our ancestors. I am on Ancestry as so many of us are, and have been blessed to explore and discover ancestors back to the 1500s and I was even able to set foot on Irish ground where my father's maternal ancestors were from. Their first steps were there and I walked there and saw what they had seen. It was like walking on hallowed ground and feeling this overwhelming sense of purpose and strength and connection.
I am connecting the past with the present with this art work from a photograph.
