Friday Photos: Because the World Really is Burning

Tweet Is it our imagination or is the global order falling into systemic disorder? North Korea, a giant gulag, has managed to intimidate the entire Hollywood system. Meanwhile, the Obama regime, allegedly sworn to defend and protect America from all threats foreign and domestic, seems far more interested in cozying up to the ruthless tyrants […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Still Burning…

Tweet It’s been another terrible, horrible very bad week with the release of a Democrat, ahem, study, that seeks to persecute President George W. Bush and the CIA for their efforts to protect America against genocidal IslamoNazis. The Democrat Senate report is a lynching, just as the Ferguson riots are lynch mobs, and just as […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Burning…

Tweet All across the country protests, riots, and race-baiters doing what they do in order to disrupt civil society. We don’t know about you, but here at Seraphic Secret we feel the need for some relief from the endless cycle of horrible, terrible, very bad news. We yearn for beauty, for images that, in one […]

Friday Photos: Still Scattered

Tweet   We hope all our readers had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. Keeping to last week’s theme of eschewing a theme, Seraphic Secret is, once again, indulging in a collection of random photos that we like for various reasons. We hope you do too.

Hollywood: I Drive Therefore I am Free

Tweet The automobile represents freedom. You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s path to liberty. Contrast cars with trains. Railroads are an expression of the collective. Individual identity is erased. You are at the mercy of a government-controlled system that turns  citizens into […]

Hollywood Friday Photos — Just Because

Tweet This week Seraphic Secret has been preoccupied with, um, stuff. Hence, no time to post about the latest ObamaCare outrage, our government of the pen and by the phone, and of course, John Kerry’s startling and touching discovery of his Jewish ancestry. Anyhoo. It is Friday. Time to take a vacation from the weight […]

Friday Photos: Totally Random

Tweet Usually, we publish photos that have a central theme. Not today. We’re feeling a bit scattered. Perhaps we’re spooked by ObamaCare, by what’s happening to this country. We are watching a national calamity unfold in slow motion, and we are helpless to stop it. In any case, here are a few photos, most taken […]

Friday Photos: Gone To Texas

Tweet Karen and I took a short vacation last week in Texas. We have beloved cousins who live in Dallas, and we and stayed with them for Shabbos. Texas is a great state with sane housing costs, low taxes, and reasonable regulations. Concealed carry permits are issued without onerous burdens on the citizen. The orthodox […]

Friday Photos: Seraphic Secret in Israel

Tweet Karen and I attended our niece Ariella’s wedding in Israel two weeks ago. It was a quick trip, just four days, but it was still enough to create a lifetime’s worth of memories.

Friday Photos: Johnstown Flood

Tweet Somehow, it seems appropriate to publish these old photos today. “Over one-hundred and twenty years ago the Johnstown Flood killed 2209 people.  The bodies of 900 victims were never recovered. “The Pennsylvania flood had both natural and human origins.  A powerful storm delivered six to ten inches of rain in twenty-four hours.  Then the […]

Friday Photos: Stars And Their Cars

Tweet Automobiles represent freedom. You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s most potent symbol of, and path to liberty. Contrast cars with trains. Trains and subways are an expression of the collective. Individual identity is erased. You are at the mercy of a […]

Friday Photos: Montage

Tweet Last night’s Vice-Presidential debate was most notable for the optics delivered to the public. No matter what the candidates said, their style conveyed a powerful message. Joe Biden, a bombastic wind-bag, smirked, snarled, rolled his eyes, laughed, and displayed contempt for Congressman Ryan. In contrast, young Paul Ryan was dignified, earnest, polite, respectful and […]

Friday Photos: Maayan Ariel

Tweet It’s been quite a week. The RNC took center stage with a powerful message calling for a return to constitutional values, support for Israel, and a resounding rejection of the collectivist, big government tyranny being imposed by the current, extremist regime. Hurricane Isaac brought disaster to some communities in the Big Easy, while Obama […]

Friday Photos: Blue

Tweet Wandering around my beautiful neighborhood recently, I’ve noticed lots of blue. Always on the lookout for compelling Friday Photos, I decided that blue would be a fun theme. And then, once I made that decision, all I saw was blue: blue cars, blue buildings — you name it, it’s blue. I suppose the same […]

Friday Photos: How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Tweet Summer vacation. Seraphic Secret spent time in Yosemite and not long afterwards, Offspring #2 and family arrived in Los Angeles for a two-week vacation. Activities included a wedding at the Terranea Resort, day trips to museums, playgrounds, and swimming in Casa Avrech’s cement pond. Vacation time is almost over, but our memories will last […]
