I’ve never felt so Jewish as I did with my head uncovered, having a beer on the beach in Tel Aviv.
I’ve never felt so alive as I did driving
in Tel Aviv traffic.
I’ve never so instantly prayerful, so reverential as I did on the Temple Mount, surrounded by Muslim sites of worship.
I’ve never felt so focused, so calm inside as I did after a week away from Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress.
I’ve never felt so connected to a place so strange, so troubled, so wonderful, so surprising.
