Spring


1482 Sandro Botticelli (Italian artist, 1445-1510) Primavera, or Allegory of Spring Detail

 Walther von der Vogelweide
(um 1170 – 1230)

Frühling und Frauen
Wenn die Blumen aus dem Grase dringen,
Gleich als lachten sie zur hellen Sonne,
Des Morgens früh an einem Maientag,
Wenn die kleinen Vöglein munter singen,
Ihre schönsten Weisen, welche Wonne
An solche Lust dann wohl noch reichen mag?
Halb gleicht’s wohl schon dem Himmelreiche;
Soll ich nennen aber, was ihm gleiche,
So weiß ich, was mein Auge je
Noch mehr entzückt hat und auch stets
entzücken wird, wenn ich es seh’.
Wo ein edles Fräulein, hold zu schauen,
Wohl gekleidet und das Haar geschmücket,
Sich unter Leuten heitern Sinns ergeht,
Sittsam froh, vereint mit andern Frauen,
Nur zuweilen etwas um sich blicket
Und wie die Sonne über Sternen steht:
Da bring’ der Mai uns alle Wunder,
Was wohl wär’ so Wonnereiches drunter,
Als ihr viel minniglicher Leib?
Wir lassen alle Blumen steh’n
und schau’n nur an das schöne Weib.
Nun wohlan, wollt ihr die Wahrheit schauen,
Geh’n wir zu des Maien Jubelfeste,
Der jetzt ins Land mit allen Kräften kam!
Schaut ihn an und sehet schöne Frauen,
Was von beiden da wohl sei das beste,
Und sagt, ob ich das bess’re Teil nicht nahm?
Ach, wenn mich einer wählen hieße,
Daß ich eines für das andre ließe,
Wie bald doch wär’ die Wahl gescheh’n!
Herr Mai, Ihr möchtet März sein, eh’
ich sollt’ von meiner Herrin geh’n!

Ah Chee Lo, a young indian child – 1905

This is a fascinating collection of Native American Indian photographs from the turn  of the last century!  Several tribes are represented in this collection: Sioux, Walapai, Brule, Arikara and Tluwulahu.  Such a stoic people, I believe that there is a lot to be learned from lives that were led so simply.  While I look to god for my spiritual and worldly guidance, I do believe there is a lot to glean from these “simple” people.  There lives were anything but simple, the thought of living from the land, every minute of every day, really gives me pause.  I want to give credit for these spectacular photos, the clarity of old film just cannot be duplicated by a digital memory!  All of these photos were originally shot by Edward S. Curtis and can be found on this website: http://www.old-picture.com/

The New Western Woman of the 1920s


 

.

1919 Niklaus Stoecklin (Swiss artist, 1896-1982) Nelly
While I was looking at the change over time in the depiction of women with veils, it struck me that it was not just the clothing or the artist’s styles that had changed. It was the attitude of the women. They were more independent and more self assured. It was 1920, after all, and American women were just getting to vote in national elections for the 1st time since 1776. But the change I saw was fairly universal across Europe and the other Western countries. Here are a few of those confident new women, young and old. (Barbara Wells Sarudy )
