El sitio de Jerusalén del año 70 d. C. fue un acontecimiento decisivo en la primera guerra judeo-romana. Fue seguido por la caída de Masada en el año 73. El ejército romano, dirigido por el futuro emperador Tito, con Tiberio Julio Alejandro como su segundo al mando, sitió y conquistó la ciudad de Jerusalén, que había estado ocupada por sus defensores judíos desde el año 66. La ciudad y su famoso templo fueron destruidos el mismo año de su conquista.
La destrucción del Templo de Jerusalén todavía es lamentada anualmente durante la festividad judía Tisha b'Av y en el Arco de Tito (todavía en pie en Roma), donde se representa y celebra el saqueo de Jerusalén y el Templo.

Obon is a period of time in Japan when one’s ancestors come home and stay with the family. We welcome our ancestors with fireworks and lanterns with our family crest as a sign so that they don’t get lost on their way.
It rained on the first day of Obon this year but fireworks and lanterns looked rather nice and magical in the rain.
The weather seems better today with a bit of sunshine☀️We can finally feel summer in the air! As much as I love Mt. Mitake covered in a blanket of fog, I miss the refreshing clear sky.

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to get to chat to writer (and now novelist) Julie Keys regarding her debut novel, 'The Artist's Portrait'. I was astonished to learn that, for someone who had captured what it is like for an artist to find inspiration so well, Julie was not an artist herself and had no previous experience with art. How to faithfully depict that sensation and all other aspects that aggregate into this amazing novel came from her extensive research.
Julie also discussed the story's origins, including the car accident that prompted her to give up her old job and start writing full-time.
My interview with Julie is now up on Compulsive Reader (link in bio y'all). Have a read of that and get your hands on a copy of 'The Artist's Portrait' now! (Has my mum's rubber stamp of approval too!). #interview#chat#writer#writers#author#authors#historical#creative#fiction#hachette#publisher#published#book#books#novel#novels#writing#australian#sydney#story#art#scene
Muchos están en busca de la ciudad más hermosa del mundo cuando ni se daban cuenta de tu existencia. Bella CDMX, tu albergas los recuerdos más importantes de mi vida, pues me has visto crecer desde que nací, y lo seguirás haciendo.
The mall was developed in 1975 with Sears as its anchor store, the expansion of JC Penney, Macy’s, a movie theater and a food court were added later. Target and Dillard’s were added in the mid 90s.
At its peak the mall had 140 stores and heavy traffic however a sharp decline began in the 1990s resulting in the relocation of Target and Dillard’s in 2008. JC Penney’s remained operational until 2013 before shutting down and the area being deemed a dead mall.
The images of the malls decay symbolize the era of retail disruption by the online giants.
There was speculation just this year that Amazon plans to develop a distribution facility on site but nothing concrete has been established (link in bio). I love abandoned places and this one is one of my favorites, mainly because you have the contrast of such a notable brand like JC Penney without any customers and located in a dead building, yet signs of past traffic and activity still apparent.
