I've the strongest desire to leap head first into the future. Just to head straight into my next educational adventure, my next language adventure, my next relationship adventure. I haven't even come close to finishing these first few. It's upsetting and leaves me tied by my ankle at the end of a limp rope. Why … Continue reading The Angsty Good
This is a brief piece coming to mind after listening to the Jazz tune, Calling You, sung by Giorgia though originally by, I believe, Jeff Buckley. It may or may not become something like a short story.
I still have a week and three days left in this absurdly long break. I'm beginning to feel homesick to a great degree without any strict routine. I miss the climate of home, all the trees and the bodies of water that are not dead and low. I miss my family and their oddities and … Continue reading The Paradox of Balance
There is volatile energy surrounding everything. All of us are coops for this energy. Just atoms loosing and gaining possibility and narrative.
The Hebrew University is still on break for roughly another twenty days. I realized today that, as you get older, breaks are just designed for you to work more.

Yesterday I spent roughly twelve hours in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv. The bus station we arrived at looked like something out of a military complex. It was huge. We, a group of five, walked through metal detectors (something I'm an old hat at now having to walk through them everyday at University) and … Continue reading Tel Aviv: First Visit
There is a garden where the sandy colored stone paths are bordered by running water. The walls are darker, more rugged stone and are covered in green mosses and green vines. Water dripped from the top of the stones and into ponds of lily pads and coy fish. Many things grew here; plants native to … Continue reading The Garden
So I arrived in Israel. Needless to say all the anxiety and fretting were completely worthless, however they still remain in the most gruesome nausea and stomach pain. I made it through customs at Tel Aviv with only one question, "where are you studying?" I replied and went through along with several Orthodox and those … Continue reading Making it to Israel
