and in peace and thanks

Up above the clouds there is peace also. Perhaps only the whispers of the airconditioning on your jet as you look down from above them and take a photo through your window. Or two or three...

Maybe you don't need the jet just now...

XXXXXXXXXXXX TRIGGER WARNING XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

This is from a memoir posted publicly by one of her cousins who flew over to the ceremony in Cfar Etzion, whose anniversary is tomorrow, on Friday morning. The day before the first evening of Passover, as it was then.

"While I was in Israel, one of the women who had prepared Anna's body for burial came up to me and told me that when she saw Anna's face, it was the most peaceful expression she'd ever seen. She said she looked like an angel, like she was only sleeping."

XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Worth remembering. It resonates with me now because PEACE is one of the words she left me, to remember her by.

And I do.

Hoping that each of you can share peace in your own way, whatever you might use to heal you most and warm your growth...

Passover has already passed - yesterday was the last day of it. The Hebrew calendar and the Gregorian one do not match.

'Tis a revealed truth to keep the differences straight... the Jewish community here is nearly invisible and their info is too. Amsterdam is quite the different story, it seems.

Its stuff like this that makes me want to live. Maybe I'll never understand why some people can't, but that's okay with me. Thanks for inspiration yet again.
