Tsiki askara

Yom Hazikaron 2016 (Memorial Day)

This picture was taken  the week after Tsiki was killed.   I don’t know why I decided to join his male family and friends on the trip to Hebron but I did, I probably thought I was being tough about it, that it was my duty as his partner. In  any case,  I wanted to see [...]

Yom Hazikaron 2015 (Memorial Day)

Tell me because I can’t remember I asked my friends about April 25, 2005: I was sitting on the bed closest to the door, and you on the other.  We were facing each other, so our knees were nearly touching.  There was someone to your left, I am pretty sure it was Lalo.  Your phone [...]

Yom Hazikaron 2014 (Memorial Day)

It’s our routine; Ziggy lifts his wet arms to be lifted out of the tub. I must always use the pink towel and I must always make sure the special velcro part of the children’s towel is tied around my neck. I wrap him tightly and we hold our cheeks against one another. This is [...]

Yom Hazikkaron 2013

Grief is lonely, it’s a tunnel with no light. It breaks you and tears you up inside. It hurts.  It consumes you by eating at you, it takes your words out and replaces them with silence.

The once loud, bustling street has been silenced by the light rail, instilling a refreshing calm in one of [...]

Technology

I’ve come to a point where I am beginning to trust my GPS more than my own logic. Yesterday, I was taken to the top of a mountain, to the entrance of a national park that hosts a stalactite cave rather than listen to my own logic of “a community center cannot be situated in [...]

Blood Test

When you go in for a blood test, the procedure is always the same. Arm, vein, stick. The nurse reads the different types of tests you need from a piece of peper and then picks the color-coded vials from a tray next to her. Some of the vials come in different shapes and there are [...]

Remembering Tsiki 2012

There is an army training video, that reviews the incident that left Tsiki dead. I know this because every couple months a friend calls me up to let me know they watched it on their reserve service, and that something in that video reminded them of something they already knew. “It was as if everything [...]
