Hello, it's that time of year again where I get off my ass, get motivated by some grace of god, and run a 10k and then feel awesome about myself (then stop and procrastinate another 3-6 months). This time, I'll run as part of the Jerusalem Marathon, and I'm going to do it as a... Continue Reading →
Did you know? Romeo & Juliet are frozen in time, trapped in a cave on the Israeli hillside. There's an inside joke in my family: got visitors coming from abroad? Take 'em to the stalactite cave. Ok, it's not funny. But we find ourselves at this fascinating, nerdy, science-ridden cave of wonders once a year... Continue Reading →
My lil tree hugger on Tu B'Shvat eve.
On this beautiful Israel election day, in our eretz nehederet, let's take a moment to appreciate the fact that we get to choose who screws us over. It's actually amazing. Did you feel it today?

Boy stuff, school stuff, three stuff, soon-to-be four stuff (stuff Dr. Seuss didn't write about this one so it looks like I may do the job for him). Anyway, on Friday I took him for a mother-son 'adventure' (his word, not mine) through the valley... Continue Reading →
Wow. So, this just happened. Heard HaBayit HaYehudi front runner Naftali Bennett got snotty on his Facebook page today, so I went to check it out. Typed out his name and - Oh, hello, Bibi Netanyahu. You crashed yet another party. Living your meme, much? Or are you a lil afraid you will one day... Continue Reading →
Kinda like the side of the highway, where I walk in the mornings and find leftover snow to step in, for just a second, while no one's watching - my 52 Frames photo this week is one last photographic taste of the good white stuff. Except more like street-lit at nighttime yellowish stuff. I debated... Continue Reading →
