Beautiful words: When I scan the wonder of creation, I see a watercolor filled with endless glazed nuances. My eyes ponder and pause at nature’s great artistry. I see vignettes and the sheer perfection and beauty of them. The interactions of color, shadows and composition...be they delicate flowers in a garden, dazzling lights dancing on the water or the breath-taking vista seen from afar...hold me in their grasp. And then I begin to paint the watercolor in my mind. Determining what paint mixture would make that sparkling color, what brush technique would make that texture...my inner view-finder crops the picture and focal point begins to speak.
Elder Daniel ben Regesh
Regesh is the overseer of the Vero Yahad. For him, blindness is not a deterrence, but a springboard.
Daniel ben Regesh currently makes his home in Cleveland, TN; a mecca for Christian Pentecostals as well as Hebrew Roots Groups. He has worked as preacher and musician for numbers assemblies we might call "Hebraic," but now, as an Essene, he has been putting away childish ways to discover the real roots of the Nazarene movement of the first century. Regesh is host for VEY's popular on-line Shabbat service, which anyone may attend through phone or PC. He is also a very able-bodied preacher in the old-style, and can speak to slavery and bigotry, having been himself the target of the Klan and other racists. Regesh is also the main mover, shaker and organizer of this year's Tabernacles Event in Chattanooga nearby where the battles of the Civil War were fought - as well as the battles for Reconstruction.
