Can you believe this? Slice #22 and the weather is probably what it was back on Slice #1 and yes we are on the Jersey Shore but still it’s cold. But a change of scenery is really so important.
I snap lots of moments and Tuvia is my favorite subject but something happens to him when he gets near the water. It’s a magic elixur for him. Watching watch the water. I don’t have the words for this experience.
I feel his connection most deeply in Israel, when we walk together in Tel Aviv. We talk a lot about what that sea and shore looked like when he first arrived in Israel but all bodies of water offer him something very special.
So even though it’s cold and I wish I had taken more of my winter clothes it’s worth it just to be here and watch him.
Maybe I will find the words as we walk and talk.
