To Dwell in the Palace

I`ve just read "Forever my Jerusalem," a personal account of the siege of the Old City in 1948 by Puah Shteiner. The story was still embedded in my thoughts as I drifted through the Old City this morning. Usually I dodge the tourists and slowpokes with my New-York-acquired lightning-speed pace, but today I just sat on a bench, as ancient as the stones surrounding me, watching people. The French couple I drew above approached me and gave me their details in Paris just in case I visit... What a nice way to make connections...
Feeling great and grateful to be here.
