"Israel is not going to commit suicide.  It doesn't matter what the UN does.  It is time for the Palestinian leadership to renounce all promises to annihilate the country, accept its right to exist and work toward a two-state solution…"

"I feel for the Palestinians too.  70 years ago they had a state, briefly, but their leaders chose to attack Israel and lost that war and the state.  Since then, they have been cursed with more 'leaders' that choose again and…"

The End of the World for Me

Posted on January 23, 2018 at 1:00pm 8 Comments

Your little girl's screams brought the neighbors. Did you know? She was in the back yard; the place of birthday parties, long lost balloons, that friggin Barney birthday cake, Easter-egg hunts, your ashtray up on the fence post, mom's still-going-strong Boston fern in the corner, the pot rotted and cracked, and you working on a bike engine. Oldies on the radio, "Why does the sun go on shining? Why does the sea rush to shore?" and Grace splashing in the wading pool. There, there, she was…

My dad had a rule, " NO DRIVE-INS!" and,… Continue

When Everything Was Swept Away, What She Remembered to the End

Posted on July 19, 2015 at 11:00am 3 Comments

Oh, Kolya, do you remember our street? How the dust whirled into fluffs before the toes of your shoes as you casually escorted me to our home? To that ever-sad place where our shared grandmother mourned not the sons that had bequeathed us to her, but her pony stolen by "them" when she was, "just your age, Katia"? The sons betraying her, us, became "them", lost to her. They were just two more willing participants in a "New Golden Age" that left her bitter and defiant. Our mothers were then… Continue
