A Bye Bye

I visited this little octagonal chapel on the island of Ruegen, Baltic Sea, with my mother. Inside some scripts and large oil paintings: how many sailors were not rescued, because heavy storms were outside. My mother made suicide, but her storms were made by politics and rules of social behaviour. She had not the power to keep her head above water, swimming in ideologies.

  1. so touching… Made me sad… I prayed now for her, in her peaceful place, you are a proud of son, I am sure. Thank you dear Frizz, love, nia


  2. Such a sad life you have lived, Dietmar. Where did the name Frizz come from? I looked at the Wikipedia link and the islands look very beautiful.
    A terrible thing that the gulf between you grew so wide.
    A lovely tune for her this morning. 🙂


  3. Dietmar, es freut mich, dass Du mein Foto gebrauchen konntest für Deinen Blog. Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin viel Erfolg. Liebe Grüsse, Dietmut


  4. Hard to ‘like’ when it sounds so sad. Beautiful way to honor your mom. ♪♫♪♪♫♪

    I didn’t mean to like… but want to acknowledge how you honor you mom.


  7. I like the chapel very much–and I’m sad that you lost your mom, and that she couldn’t keep her head above the waters. I know about that kind of deep despair, so my words are not empty. My Faith is BIG, but I’m not so arrogant to think I may yet flounder in the waves.


  8. Beautiful photo and music, but a very sad story. I’m sorry about your mother loss, Frizz.
    Kind greetings.

  10. She never heard of the Beatles? How can that possibly be?


    • in East Germany it was forbidden, to hear foreign radio channels. my mother was much too anxious. though everywhere the secret service STASI was behind the corner: you can’t live without courage. without courage you must die.


Hearing from you makes my day!
