life after aliyah

we forget that there is life after aliyah. after marriage. after attacks. after death.
you spend years planning things. so many plans. what will you do for a living? where will you live? will you like your living?
will you live?
i’ve taken hours and days upon myself planning for the next couple of years but i’ve never factored in catastrophes. like cancer.
we forget everything that comes after the moment. we forget everything that happened before the moment. but if we didnt forget, how would we live?

we forget that there is life after aliyah.
we forget that there is death after life.

in memory of selim dweck, who died too early.
in condolence of rochelle catton, who lost too early.
