Seitz Site

One of the attractions of the Internet is that you can start out looking for information on one topic and through the happenstance of links end up exploring an entirely different topic -- including a topic that you didn't know you were interested in. This page is my contribution to the spirit of serendipitious adventure on the World Wide Web. The topics are of interest to one or more members of my family. The websites to which links are provided may be primarily sources of information or entertainment, or they may be gateways to other sites. Your adventure begins with the click of your mouse.

Before you leave, do you want to make a comment about this site? You can return to this departure page by closing the new window that should have opened when you went to the comment instructions.

This subsection does not contain a link to another Website. Instead I want to share a haiku written by Mirza A. Beg of Tuscaloosa, Ala. The following is what he wrote as introduction:

This started as an essay on Sufism, but got lost in the intertwined thoughts of "Fana and Baqua," sublimation in the ultimate reality. As a Sufi poet wrote, "If the Earth was converted to papers, the forests to pens and the oceans to ink, it would not suffice to write the attributes of the God." Some words from the elusive essay congealed as two poems, but would forever remain incomplete.

I have omitted the poem from this page because of length.

The Alabama Theatre in downtown Birmingham, Ala., was built in 1927 as a movie palace, complete with a Wurlizter theater pipe organ. After falling on some hard times, it was rescued by the Alabama Chapter of the American Theater Organ Society and took on a broader role as a theater for the performing arts under the ownership of Birmingham Landmarks, Inc., a nonprofit corporation. More recently, the Alabama Theater has received an extensive refurbishing. For more information, see:

The official Alabama Theatre Website.

If you just want to see what the organ looked like before its refurbishing go to Mighty Wurlizter pipe organ

Some day I will again have a model railroad, but for now I offer you a link to the Cyberspace World Railroad Home Page, which has its own information and items of interest plus an extensive list of links to other websites concerned with railroads and/or model railroads. Or you can visit my cousin Don DeWitt's Dreamin' Layouts.

One of the more interesting ways to explore the history of a city is through the architecture of its buildings. Dr. Steven Reyer, a professor of electrical engineering, has done just that with his Milwaukee Architecture Web Site, an album of Milwaukee buildings and their history divided among the eras in which they were built. Even if you have no ties to Milwaukee, you can learn something about buildings that can help you interpret the architectual history of your own hometown.

Are you a reader of historical novels? Even if you're not, you might enjoy some of the books written by my cousin, Ciji Ware, which are being reissued or published for the first time by a new publisher. You can find out more about both her fiction and non-fiction books at her website.

The 23rd Missouri Volunteer Infantry is of interest to me for genealogical reasons. My three-great grandfather, Maj. John McCullough, served in it. I have placed the link to Rex Gooch's site here for the benefit of Civil War buffs.
