Thank you for your votes of confidence. I feel like I'm actually doing something constructive now. I'd just like to tell you all about my day. And this is not an out of the ordinary day for me. Nor was it a very hectic day - by my new Israeli terms. 6:13am. Alarm goes… Continue reading It’s unanimous
Lately people have been asking me "why don't you blog anymore?" I can't begin to mention how many posts I have begun... And then become disheartened and never complete them. A couple of reasons why. In this age of social media and quick fixes - I wonder why it is necessary to expose my life… Continue reading In a quandry
Have you ever been part of a whole? No family is perfect. Least of all mine. But there really is something to say about family. My father, OBM, was one of 5 brothers. He was the middle child. They were all born in an era, pre -war and slightly post. Times were tough, and it… Continue reading Family.
I rarely have time to write anymore and I do miss it. I have been wanting to write a post on this in forever! But time, inclination, energy, procrastination... a zillion reasons why I haven't. But here it is. A kind of confession. Here I sit in a beautiful French cafe in Ashdod. Just ordered… Continue reading the time is fast approaching
I have to laugh. It's all one can do. Typical day.... Wake up early and exhausted after staying up to late laughing at a comedian I just discovered. Michael McIntyre. Really funny - but should not allow myself this luxury. Or perhaps do it 3 hrs earlier! It cost me a bit of patience this… Continue reading One has to laugh

Some were eclectic, some ultra orthodox and some tzioni. But all of them religious. After the principal gave a very emotional… Continue reading 1 September 2016
Finally. It's taken me forever. But I'm back and official. Here is a post I wrote on the plane. Will be more current from now on. The day finally arrived. There has been an endless amount of things to do. My year in Israel last year seemed like an ultra marathon. I was stretched physically,… Continue reading OLIM CHADASHIM.
The day has dawned. Literally and figuratively. I awoke before the dawn. Time to get up. Nursed my 1.5 yr old for the last time. As she lolled back into her slumber, I quietly slipped out of my bed. Taking a glance back at my baby and oldest 14, I swallowed hard and said a… Continue reading The sweet life can sometimes be bittersweet
I want to just scream!!!!! How many time have I read 'enough!!' In the comments?? How many people are blaming the government for not doing enough? Maybe they aren't. I have no idea. But it's not about that. This is spiritual warfare!!!! How much are we each doing? Have you looked deep into yourself? Are… Continue reading ENOUGH!!!
This could be my most important blog yet. I'm not a stand on a soap box kind of gal. I have my very definite beliefs and I'm not shy to be vocal about them, but not the type to shout through a loud speaker and be in your face. But now it's different. Now I… Continue reading Here we go!
