Remembering Those Who are Away:

Remembering Those Who are Away - Kevin Dayhoff, 24Dec2021: It is a tradition to leave a light in the window to remember folks who are away from home or have died. To remember the folks who have gone before us and helped pave the way for the quality of life and freedoms we enjoy today. We want them to know that they are missed, and we want to light the way for their memories and their soul to visit during the holidays.

The light comes with a silent prayer for their safe return and that someone has remained behind to tend to the home fires and wait for their return – to light the way until we meet again.

For many the Christmas season is tough enough. The season has become a vampire squid that has wrapped itself around our neck, annexed Thanksgiving and Halloween and turned November and December into an endurance contest of relentless responsibilities, expectations, and shallow end-of-the-year celebrations.

For whatever reason, contemporary American society seems to have turned a deaf ear and a blind eye to the grieving process and shoved it into a dark corner. Changes in the circumstances of our life are a natural part of our existence.

The holidays are a busy time, but never too busy to stop and ponder the benefits of all the blessings we enjoy as a result of a loved-one, friend, colleague, brother or sister in arms, or a family member that has left our side and greatly missed.  

I often stress that folks who deal with death and tragedy on the job or have suffered a loss in their personal life - find a friend and ‘keep talking about it.’

J'Accuse 1919 full silent movie by Abel Gance (english subtitles)



October 9, 1921: “J’accuse” by Abel Gance

Next month, on October 9, 1921 is the anniversary of the French classic silent movie, “J’accuse.” This is not the movie with the title, ‘J’Accuse, (An Officer and a Spy,)” by Roman Polansky, that was released in August 2019, about the accusations against the French Jewish artillery officer Alfred Dreyfus in 1894. Owen Gleiberman wrote a great article about the Polansky movie, in “Variety”, on August 30, 2019. Find it here: https://variety.com/2019/film/reviews/jaccuse-an-office-and-a-spy-review-roman-polanski-1203319146/

The movie, released in the US in October 1919, is about “two men who love the same woman and meet in the trenches of the First World War. Their tale becomes a microcosm for the horrors of the war.” Find the entire movie on YouTube, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiqKNwxL6oc

Which, in full transparency, I think is in the top-20 most compelling, yet undeniably and perpetually neurotic movies of all time. It certainly rivals the work of Ingmar Bergman’s work.

One of the most disturbing scenes – among many truly disturbing scenes, is the classic, “return of the dead,” sequence. It is best described by writer Kevin Brownlow, in his 1968 book, “The Parades Gone By.” Mr. Brownlow explains, “The sequence of the 'return of the dead' at the end of the film was shot in the south of France, using 2000 soldiers who had come back on leave.

Abel Gance, who both wrote and directed the movie, recalled, according to Brownlow, “The conditions in which we filmed were profoundly moving... These men had come straight from the Front – from Verdun – and they were due back eight days later. They played the dead knowing that in all probability they'd be dead themselves before long. Within a few weeks of their return, eighty per cent had been killed…

For the film's opening title, a large group of soldiers, filmed from above, is formed up to shape the letters J...A...C...C...U...S... E. In the middle of preparing the shot, a general asked Gance what was happening. Gance stalled until the shot was complete, and then explained to the startled general that he was "accusing the war... accusing men... accusing universal stupidity".

In the final scenes of the film, according to Brownlow, Gance's accusations, through the mouth of Jean Diaz, seem to be levelled against those who have not cared enough – the civilians who enjoyed another life, or those who profited from the war, or who simply forgot what it meant.

The soldiers risen from the dead are said to be content to return to their rest once reassured by the living that their sacrifice has not been in vain. Diaz's final accusation is made against the sun for being a mute witness to so much horror.

Asked whether he regarded J'accuse as a pacifist film, Gance replied: "I'm not interested in politics... But I am against war because war is futile. Ten or twenty years afterward, one reflects that millions have died and all for nothing. One has found friends among one's old enemies, and enemies among one's friends.

According to a preview of the movie on YouTube: J'accuse is a 1919 French silent film directed by Abel Gance. It juxtaposes a romantic drama with the background of the horrors of World War I, and it is sometimes described as a pacifist or anti-war film. Work on the film began in 1918, and some scenes were filmed on real battlefields. The film's powerful depiction of wartime suffering, and particularly its climactic sequence of the "return of the dead", made it an international success, and confirmed Gance as one of the most important directors in Europe.

Ana Criado - Vulnerable (Denis Kenzo Remix)


Ana Criado - Vulnerable (Denis Kenzo Remix) lyrics

adI am down on my knees
A pale reminder of who I am, broken wings
I can't ask for another try
I gambled on a dream, a lie

Don't ask me to fight where I don't believe
I find my peace in acceptance of what is
I can't ask for another try
I gambled on a dream, a lie

With nowhere to hide
This is where I am
Raw in my emotions
Giving in
Not playing a charade
Empty and afraid
Meet me as I am
Vulnerable

 LYRICS

The moon is full, so bright

With the weightlessness of light

A curved path of our celestial hearts

We move in orbit around the night


Drawn from the outside

Bound from deep within

Locked in each other’s heart & gravity

Floating through nothing

Connecting the unseen

Now that I have you here

You’re in my orbit

National Vietnam War Veterans Day March 29

National Vietnam War Veterans Day March 29, 1973: 

Today - March 29th is National Vietnam War Veterans Day, marking the day U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, disestablished on March 29, 1973. 

Caroline and I stopped by the Vietnam Memorial at Willis and Court Street over the weekend and cleaned-up the area. This is the 4th year of Vietnam Veterans Day – I think in the future we ought to hold a small ceremony at the memorial like we do for Memorial Day, Veterans Day and over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. 

This year, for Woman's History Month and National Vietnam War Veterans Day, I wrote a story about Barbara Robbins. Robbins is something of a legend - in a hushed tone of voice - in the agency. I have always found this story so haunting and sad: Barbara Robbins was the first female killed in the line of duty in Vietnam. Please find the story here: https://www.baltimoresun.com/maryland/carroll/lifestyles/cc-lt-dayhoff-032121-20210319-zsdd6doivjadbi275p234jsqyy-story.html

Mission BBQ opened today in Westminster

Mission BBQ opened today in Westminster where Friendly's Restaurant used to be located at 584 Jermor Way

Friendly's had closed at that location on Nov. 27, 2018. According to an article in the Carroll County Times on Nov. 28, 2018, "The company that was founded in 1935 the middle of the Great Depression in Springfield, Massachusetts, and would become Friendly Ice Cream Corp. filed for bankruptcy in 2011, according to the Wall Street Journal.."

It was a great day. At 12-noon, Westminster Police Officer Terrence McGowan sang the National Anthem as fire equipment surrounded the restaurant and Westminster Fire Department Tower 3 flew the American Flag. 

Vietnam vets were treated to sandwich. Mission BBQ chose to open today - March 29th on National Vietnam War Veterans Day, marking the day U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, disestablished on March 29, 1973.

Carole King - Out in the Cold (Official Audio)


"Out In the Cold", a single recorded during the 'Tapestry ' sessions that ultimately did not make it onto the album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8QqSvYT3SY

https://www.facebook.com/kevindayhoff/posts/10221916446753878

Tapestry topped the U.S. album chart for 15 weeks in 1971, and remained on the charts for more than six years – featuring such songs as "It's Too Late" and "I Feel the Earth Move"

Of course, as a writer, I was immediately drawn to singer-songwriter music. Music performed by artists who tell stories by writing and performing their own material.

Tapestry reminded me of Southern Gothic literature. An article by David Browne in Rolling Stone published February 10, 2021 explained, “Similarly, the narrator of “It’s Too Late” is almost matter of fact when surveying the end of a relationship; she sounds rational, not distraught. For the 50th anniversary, an album outtake, “Out in the Cold,” has been resurrected after first appearing as a bonus track on a 1999 CD reissue. A confessional about being unfaithful to a lover and paying the price, it feels rational and adult (if not totally empowered)…” (‘Tapestry’ at 50: Why Carole King’s Masterpiece Still Challenges Us - With its masterful songcraft and backstory of personal reinvention, King’s 1971 landmark remains one of pop’s greatest declarations of independence…)

Some of the best examples singer-songwriters include artists such as Bob Dylan, "Mixed-Up Confusion" (1962); Paul McCartney, "Love Me Do"/"P.S. I Love You" (1962); John Lennon, Chuck Berry, Joni Mitchell, “Urge for Going”); and Carole King, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (1960.)

However I first became enthralled with the genre as a result of the release of Carole King’s “Tapestry.

"Out In The Cold"

I only wanted to play

I thought what he didn't know

Wouldn't hurt him anyway

But he found out and

Someone else gave him her hand to hold

And suddenly I find myself out in the cold

 

He trusted me all the time

I thought I could see another man

And he would still be mine

Well yesterday I had a good thing

Worth more than gold

Today he's got a truer love and I'm out in the cold

 

I had a love warmer than fire

But I listened to my desire

Now yesterday's dreams are tomorrow's heartache

I'm paying, paying for my mistake

 

Now, girl, take a tip from one who knows

If you open up a new door

You may find the old one's closed

So be true to your good man

Take a lesson from this story I have told

Or you just might get left now

Out in the cold

 

You just might get left now

Out in the cold

Don't let yourself get left now

Out in the cold

Don't let yourself get left now

Out in the cold

Carole King - It's Too Late (Official Lyric Video)


Lyrics:
And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died
And I can't hide and I just can't fake it
Oh no no no no (no no, no no)

Celebrating the legacy of the “Six Nations” – the Haudenosaunee Confederation pre-colonial government in Carroll County

A Historical Society of Carroll County 184th County Birthday presentation by local historian and writer Kevin Dayhoff on January 23, 2021 2:00-4:00 p.m.

Every year the Historical Society of Carroll Co. hosts a celebration of our county’s birthday in mid-January.

Out of respect for the safety protocols for the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020, this year, the 184th anniversary is celebrated live by way of Zoom. Registration is required to access the program. Registration is available at https://hsccmd.org/event/virtual-carroll-county-birthday/

Before 1744, the predominant government in Carroll County was the Haudenosaunee Nation — the “Six Nations.” The Haudenosaunee played a key role in the evolution of American democracy.

“Much of our current way of life is owed to the heritage and legacy of the Haudenosaunee Nation. Several main roads in Carroll County have their beginnings as Haudenosaunee trading routes. And several towns in Carroll County — Patapsco for example — had their beginnings as Haudenosaunee settlements.

It is interesting to note that the Haudenosaunee were a matriarchal society – that is a society that is run by women. Women owned all of the property in the long house. They were also in charge of the farming operations. As a matter of fact - Iroquois men moved into the house of his wife’s family after they got married.

The Algonquians arrived around 800 B.C. The original Algonquians divided into a number of distinct tribe-nations, which formed a multi-nation government under a constitution that dates to approximately Aug. 31, 1142.

The Algonquians called themselves the “Haudenosaunee” meaning “People of the Longhouse” and their government was one of the first true participatory democracies in history. It also incorporated full political and leadership rights for women.

“It was not until after the Treaty of the Six Nations was signed on July 4, 1744, with the Haudenosaunee Nation, and the dispute over the Mason-Dixon Line was settled in 1767 that settlers started to come to Carroll County in greater numbers…

Lessons From a Tourism Pushback in Hawaii – Skift

https://skift.com/2021/01/07/lessons-from-a-tourism-pushback-in-hawaii/ 

Fascinating discussion about post-COVID-19 tourism... FTA: Maui resident comments range from "[a]ll of Hawaii needs to get rid of tourism and go more into agriculture" to suggestions on controlling the amount of rental car availability.

Kauai's survey results express disappointment in the proposed destination plan's failure "to acknowledge the core problem (overtourism)" and that "the Steering Committee is deluding itself if it believes that Kauai residents' tourism-related concerns and hostility are primarily due to insensitive tourists, rather than the direct result of there being too many tourists."
