First Kiss

First Kiss

Notes from a visit to Germany in 2011: I have loved all my men, the two husbands and the boy-friends in between. This thought spun inside my head, while I strolled along the asphalted service road, surrounded by lavish, green meadows and the rolling elevation of the earth levee, behind our farm. Wind rustled in… Continue Reading

The Weight of History

Notes from a visit to Germany: Friday evening, May 20, 2011, I visited my friend Toelli’s art studio, only a few kilometers from our farm. We stood outside in his sculpture garden, wine glasses in our hands, enjoying a calm evening. I admired his newest creations, lanky sculptures with cubistic abstractions, painted with gentle pastel… Continue Reading

Notes from a 2010 visit to Germany: My mom sat on a log of driftwood, next to the River Rhine, petting our dog Max, a black and white mutt. We were only a few hundred yards away from our farm. This was the territory of my youth; the lush green landscape, a leisurely flowing Rhine.… Continue Reading

The following are notes for a future publication: Only after my dad’s passing, I realized the loss of the irreplaceable source of knowledge.… Continue Reading

In the Footsteps of my Ancestors

Please enjoy the notes from a conversation with my mom, while on a trip to Zandvoort, Holland, in 2011: “You know, Dorit,” my mom said, “you are just following into the footsteps of your ancestors.” She reached over and her fingers lightly touched my arm. Our heightened perspective from the hotel room’s balcony on the… Continue Reading

A Sunny Day in Tel Aviv

Today 25 years ago, on January 17. 1991, Desert Storm started and scud missiles attacked Tel Aviv. I describe my experiences in Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes in chapter 11. As a non-fiction writer I use poetry to tackle emotional or difficult subjects, in search of a way to express what I feel and want to convey… Continue Reading

Walking the Golden Path

Dear Friends, please be inspired by this meditative thought. Every major decision I make in my life is thought through and meditated upon prior to taking the actual steps in the physical realm. I also describe this metaphysical decision-making process in my book in chapter 25. I hope the meditation inspires you to experience more… Continue Reading
