Omer 21: Showing Up

Omer Day Twenty One

Yom Ha'Atzmaut~Israel Independence Day

I have been searching for words for a couple days, feeling an ache in my heart that I am not in Israel right now, in fact, an odd feeling, since the creation of Israel was meant to heal that wound of absence.

For now I'll say that one of the most important things about our relationship to Israel is related to "showing up."

Here's a family picture from our first year together.

It ain't citizenship but it is an annual, albeit temporary, presence. That's a start; and a source of life for each of us.
