Draw a line

Draw a line
My great-grandfather Erik Mattia.

It's very interesting, when you can detect the fine details, which you also see in your own face. All of a sudden you can link your self to so many open questions.
But then I had the thought, that when you see a picture like this, a Newborn, all this new life, this purity, but now you are in the position, to see this picture and you already know about his end, you know about his story, you draw a complete other line to it.
This makes even more visible, how ungraspable and unfair the way of the world often is. You see the beginning of a life and you know it ended in such an annatural way, and even so fast, after 29 years, with the bullet of fanatics.

(And then you observe, how fast things become forgotton and how less the human is able to learn. And you think, that there can never be a balance between the things that has been done, which are so heavy-weighting in our history and the insouciance of our time. Like it would be written in it's dna)

Ein schönes Bild aus einer vergangenen Zeit.
Und auch eine schöne Geste von Dir, die Vergangenheit nicht ganz vergessen zu lassen.
(Diesen Weihnachtsurlaub war auch ich damit beschäftigt, eine Auswahl von Bildern aus dem Album meines verstorbenen Onkels einzuscannen und zu überarbeiten. Eine sehr zeitintensive Beschäftigung.)

schöne -vielleicht einzige Erinnerung aus einer Zeit die noch ganz anders aber nicht besser war.
Von meinem verstorbenen Vater habe ich aus den 20 ger Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts ein ganz ähnliches Bild.
