AS THEY CROSS THE VEIL

This has been quite the week.

In just a few day, three major icons of our popular culture, each representing a different view, have passed on.

The void they leave can’t never be replaced.

They will all be remembered for generations to come.

They will always be with their loves ones …. in their hearts, in their memories and in their DNA.

As for the rest of us, we will remember them because they have left prints in our souls and hearts.

May they all rest in peace.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

~~Early life~~

Attenborough was born on 29 August 1923 in Cambridge, England, the eldest of three sons of Mary Attenborough (née Clegg), a founding member of the Marriage Guidance Council, and Frederick Levi Attenborough, a scholar and academic administrator who was a fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and wrote a standard text on Anglo-Saxon law. Attenborough was educated at Wyggeston Grammar School for Boys in Leicester and studied at RADA.

In September 1939, the Attenboroughs took in two German-Jewish refugee girls, Helga and Irene Bejach (aged 9 and 11 respectively), who lived with them in College House and were adopted by the family after the war when it was discovered that their parents had been killed. They moved to America in the 1950s and lived with an uncle, where they married and took American citizenship. They are both now deceased.

During the Second World War, Attenborough served in the Royal Air Force. After initial pilot training he was seconded to the newly formed RAF Film Unit at Pinewood Studios, under the command of Flight Lieutenant John Boulting (whose brother Peter Cotes would later direct Attenborough in the play The Mousetrap) where he appeared with Edward G. Robinson in the propaganda film Journey Together (1943).

He then volunteered to fly with the Film Unit and after further training, where he sustained permanent ear damage, qualified as a sergeant, flying on several missions over Europe filming from the rear gunner’s position to record the outcome of Bomber Command sorties.

Jurrassic Park Actor Richard Attenborough died today at the age of 90. The british actor died at lunchtime on a beautiful sunday said Lord Attenborough his son. He was also an amazing director as well. Richard Attenborough died at the age of 90, a very respectful age, he had a great life indeed, being an actor and film maker. The great escape, Brighton Rock, and Jurassic park are the big films for attenborough. Many will remember him for his funny smile, his white beard, and his big glasses and panama jack style hat.
