    A true love story with artist Dan Venditti

    in Self Help

    Dan Venditti is an artist who has always been fascinated with the human form. That, coupled with a great interest in human nature, has formed his artistic style to reveal much about himself, the subject, and the observer. His Italian heritage, coupled with various European masters, both past and contemporary, has influenced his work in many aspects. But what brings him to our show is the love story that he lived and still experiences with his high school sweetheart Annette. Despite being separated by circumstances, they keep the flame alive through letters and poems, which he's getting ready to publish soon.


    Engagement poem:


    He remembered their touch


    the hands of someone from


    another time, when just holding


    them was enough to stop his breath.


     


    The sweet touches, the warmth


    and moisture of them clasped


    on a summer night of promise.


    Holding tight. Unable to let go.


     


    But they let go like a movie scene.


    Waving goodbye, wiping tears.


    Nothing left but his own hands


    now empty, left only to hold a hope.


     


    There they are now.  Her hands.


    Moving in gestures, recounting all


    the stories and miles from there


    to here, to now.


     


    Their lines hold the stories


    raised in hope, clasped in pain.


    They have brought lives to this place,


    held them, protected them.


     


    I see them now.  Same and different.


    The hands that always kept my heart.


    A glimpse of something shining on a finger.


    A symbol.  A promise made long ago.


     


    Ti amo, bella.

    Do Vanaras Still Walk the Earth Part 2

    in Culture

    Vaa - Nara? Is it a Man?
    The ancient Vedic Scriptures speak of many mysterious races. Among these races the Vanaras stand out. Are they mere myth imagined by ancient poets? Or are they a living species that once roamed the entire planet? Who are the Vanaras? According to these sources the Vanaras played a central role at the epicenter of events specifically those events recorded in the Ramayana. By comparing Vedic descriptions of the Vanaras with descriptions of the various ape-like creatures from around the world, one scholar, Nilamani Kalia Robinson, may have solved the riddle.

    This week Congress leader Digvijay Singh called for a ban of my book(s) 'Orissa in the Crossfire - Kandhamal Burning' and their varipus editions. Citing them as RSS ideology detrimental tot he communal harmony of the nation, the Minister labeled them as dangerous as Taliban literature. Ironically anyoe who actually read my work with a fair-mind will naturally agree with my conclusion. The`2009 US Report on Religious Freedom in India' clearly changed its conclusion from its 2008 report after reciept of my Orissa report. I am hopeful that people read this work and share its conclusions widely. Its available here free of charge. http://www.lulu.com/shop/brannon-parker/orissa-in-the-crossfire-kandhamal-burning/ebook/product-17373455.html

    Italian Genealogy Group and German Genealogy Group NY Indexing Projects

    in History

    Don Eckerle of the German Genealogy Group (GGG) and John Martino of the Italian Genealogy Group (IGG) join Jane this morning to talk about the mammoth indexing projects their groups took on when they decided to tackle Long Island records and then New York City vital records and then NARA NYC records and then some more. Don and John will discuss what records they have done, what records they intend to do, and what the differences in their groups' databases are. They will also tell us how they manage their indexing projects with more than 2,000 volunteers. They'll also share interesting stories from their indexing and tell us about unusual records or people that they came across in the records.


    In May 2014 Don, John and their GGG partner Bob Boeckle received the National Genealogical Society's Award of Merit in recognition of exceptional contributions to the field of genealogy.

    Nara and Jc Niala

    in Spirituality

    Your host Karen Palmer of www.lawofattractionmagic.com welcomes an amazing Mother/daughter team. Nara is the author of a beautiful children's book, "Cows are too big to eat". Nara is five years old who lives in Riara, Nairobi and is from Kenya. She says she just thought of the book which is why she wanted to do it. She loves animals. She thinks it is important not to eat meat because you upset your animal friends. JC Niala is a creative whose work became informed by her experience of motherhood. She started off making documentaries and writing plays in her teens and later the birth of her daughter lead her into the world of children's books. As she works from home her daughter Nara got to witness firsthand the process of book production from inception to working with an illustrator to the book going to press. As vegetarians they decided to work on a book together in support of their animal friends. They live with a dog called Ours (the french for bear). i think on the show we would like to talk about the importance of advocacy on behalf of animals and the joy of living alongside them. In Kenya we are fortunate to have a lot of animals still living in their natural habitat but their existence is increasingly threatened. Nara can can certainly talk about the joys of living with a dog and about how this teaches us to understand animals all around us. I can talk about the process of giving children (and animals) a voice through the creative process.

    WEBBWVER BOOKS PROUDLY PRESENTS: AUTHOR KATHLEEN HEADY

    in Books

    http://wordpress.headywriting.com
    A simple box of mementos, hidden in a farmhouse in Wales for nearly seventy years, is enough to set Nara Blake on a search for the truth about her great-grandparents, and to put her own life in danger. Even as she begins to read her great-grandmother's diaries, a French brother and sister whose family lost everything in World War II, blame Nara's family for their lost wealth, which includes a priceless Cézanne painting. As both families learn the truth of their ancestors' activities during the war, they are put on a collision course that can only end in the destruction of long-held beliefs, and ultimately one must pay the price for the losses of the past.
