Memoir Mondays, coming to us from Two Writing Teacher
I walked into my apartment last night at 6:30 PM and after the unpacking, the washing, the efforts to feel familiar again in my space, I opened my Macbook and scrolled through my latest collection of photos for one, just one that epitomized this trip to Israel.
Mihael(4) and Mia (2), Tuvia’s Israeli grandchildren who are becoming humans now that comfortable with the Mediterranean Sea,
it’s a pleasure to walk along the beach and remember with Adi how miraculous it was when they were conceived during a December trip to Israel for Tuvia’s 80th birthday celebration. Just before the party we spent a weekend with Ami and Adi in Eilot. After years of frustration, seven failed in vitros, they took a break, got a dog and relaxed and when we returned to Tel Aviv, Adi was pregnant with Mihael.
Five years later, on a Shabbat afternoon, two children raced into the sea and we watched and remembered.
Good to be home!
