January is the longest of months

Why does January feel like the longest month of the year? This month contains 31 days, and it is indeed a long month. But so are many other months during the year. Still, January feels like the longest of them all. And for some reason, it feels like it doesn’t end. So many things have […]

The Ten years challenge

I can easily just post a picture of myself in 2009, and another one from today, but why is that a challenge? “I challenge you to show a picture of you ten years ago!” I honestly don’t recall having any real embarrassing pictures of myself ten years ago, but I could find myself in a […]

2018 resolutions review

Last year I wrote some resolutions, which I updated in March, and now I think it’s the time to review those resolutions, and evaluate my performance in 2018. You see, I sound professional. Let’s hope I can excel in keeping some resolutions this year too. So here’s a list of the resolutions I updated last […]

Christmas for Atheists

Christmas is a holiday that beats all holidays around the world. And it doesn’t matter how much you can argue, Christmas remains the most magical holiday of all times.  I was brought up in a Christian house, and surely Christmas was and still is  part of our winter holiday season. Even though we live in […]

Suffocated by modern progressive society

I wrote before about being suffocated by many things in my life. I spoke about being suffocated by society, by traditions, by patriarchy, by Zionism, and by occupation. This time I have something different that suffocates me. Something that should in fact liberate me, or make me a great human being. I try to be […]

A writer, a dream

About ten years ago I decided that I want to become a writer. I was dreaming about becoming one of those best-selling authors that can live this exciting life of just spending time in solitude and write. I spent my late teen years (18 and 19) trying to write. I knew I lacked the language […]

From Rome with Love

I just wanted to share pictures from my last trip to the magical city of Rome. Because I don’t have enough money and time, I hardly ever travel. So yes, I’m making a huge deal out of my trip to Rome. It was a spectacular visit. I took many pictures with my DSLR camera, but […]

New beginnings, in a new home

Last weekend I left a very beautiful apartment that I loved, to a smaller and less appealing apartment. I wasn’t at all excited for the move, but it is the right decision, and I will be grateful for that later. The story behind the move is long and distressing, but it’s a new beginning that […]

My home town, not my homeland

I should be entirely ashamed of my feelings. I should repent the way I feel. I was driving back to the my home town, to see my family. I do that every other weekend. The minute I entered my hometown, instead of feeling nostalgic I felt alienated. I cursed my home town. I cursed my […]
