oh so quiet

yom kippur is almost over. it's been quiet as always.

in tel aviv yom kippur is magical, the streets filled with people, bikes, talking laughter. there's no music, no traffic, no sounds of modern world. only people. here in the countryside there's not much difference from any other holiday. but then again. even here there's always the sound of a car, traffic, bits of sign from a car radio, a television through an open window. but not today. it's really just oh so quiet.

wishing you a wonderful new week.


  1. and i still haven't been in tel aviv with yom kippur,
    even though i wanted to...
    next time perhaps?
    there is a special energy to that day,
    even up on the mountain, far from all.
