You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Die Straßen, die ich gehe,
so oft ich um mich sehe,
sie bleiben fremd doch mir.
Herberg', wo ich möcht weilen,
ich kann sie nicht ereilen,
weit, weit ist sie von hier.

So fremd mir anzuschauen
sind diese Städt' und Auen,
die Burgen stumm und tot;
doch fern Gebirge ragen,
die meine Heimat tragen,
ein ewig Morgenrot.
