Just a Thought

Sometimes, I just look out the window and stare in amazement. Yup, that's Yerushalayim out there. Really? I'm here? It can't be. But it is.

The blue sky, like none other- it's like G-d went to Home Depot and mixed that exact shade of Jerusalem blue just for us. The white fluffy wisps of cloud that fade away so quickly.

I love walking the streets, seeing the sights- I love everything about this city. The people are open, friendly, blunt to a point. The melodies drift through the air- a street singer, a child learning Torah, a mother swaying with her child in the breeze.

I love this city.
I just needed to say that today. Thanks.

You want melodies on the street, just today I got to hear a jamaican with a bongo, a guy with a harmonica, and violinist. In three different places

SD- Yup. Now come to Israel and join me! Then you can be lucky too.

MIM- But it's not the same. They're not Jewish melodies. But, I hear what you're saying. Did they stay on key at least?

Sure, I'd love to! Maybe your husband has a nice single friend for me? ;-)

SD- You could come here single, you know. But I'll ask :D

Tembow- That was amazing. Scary, a bit, but amazing none the less. I won't be doing it this year, but I don't forget the experience.
