Wall of Separation – Palestine

I went to Palestine to see Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel, and what I found was a people denied basic human rights, chased off their own land, and kept hemmed in ways that no human should endure. Banksy’s use of art to tell the story of Israeli occupation is a genius ploy. I am not anti-Israel, …

Grief Becomes Me…

**I wrote this in June, but didn’t get a chance to post it. No sure why, other than I was feeling quite raw at the time. It’s now August, the pain has definitely not gone away, but I feel a little stronger and would like to share my thoughts. ** Two bereavements in two weeks… …
