I get inspired whenever I watch a Jamie Geller video. (Joy of Kosher.com) Being able to go to the Kotel anytime that I want just gives me chills.It is so powerful being nose to wall with the history,
the spiritual impact,the notes shoved into the cracks,it is so emotional,that even thinking about it makes unexplained tears come forth.I don't think that you even have to be Jewish to feel this palbable emotion.Or religious.
I have two people inside of me.The one who goes about being a caretaker,doing all of the things that make me happy. Being with good friends,reading the NYTimes,walking the dog -------all good.
The other side of me wants the adventure,the change of location,to be in Israel, to be where not everone knows my name,but where if they do, I am called by my Hebrew name ,Leah. I want to go to the shuk on Friday morning
and buy all of those wonderful fruits and vegetables that I take pictures of when I visit,,then shul on Shabbat, to walk the city streets , to share a lunch, to sit outdoors at a cafe, to have Havdalah, to say hello to a new experience,to a new me.I
am so ready and It is never too late.
