Me, on the web

Home

Early Monday morning, the sun glaring brightly through the airplane window, I watched as the city of Toronto, home for all my life, came into view.

But something was terribly different.

Over the past years I have travelled quite frequently.  I have visited England, western Canada, Cuba, and various US cities.
At the end of each trip, as I returned my seat-back and tray-table to their upright positions, I felt a sense of relief at seeing the familiar sights of the CN Tower, sky scrapers, and other landmarks.  A feeling of returning, of belonging, of home.

Not this time.

For ten days, I visited the land of Israel, and those ten days seemed like a lifetime.

Israel, where my ancestors lived thousands of years ago, is truly home.
