Kinda slow on blogging these days. Doing the internal journeying thing and not very out there. All is good.
I’ve been taking lots of pictures lately, and enjoying the simultaneous distance and closeness that comes with it; distance because it allows me to be a viewer, a bystander, and closeness because of the momentary bond created with the photographee.
Today, I went to the shuk/open-air market in central Jerusalem. I was surprised at how many vendors, normally aggressive types, shied from being photographed. I got yelled at a couple of times. But the wink from the very kind-looking redhead at the bread shop compensated for the other drama.
Shabbat will be hectic, with many people sharing the table. I’d prefer the quiet, but this’ll happily do.
