One of the intriguing things about Twitter (there aren't many, it's quite basic)is the ability to 'meet' strangers and have them open a whole world of ideas up for you, even unwittingly. I've mostly been interested in this dude and his philosemitic ways. Because sometimes living in Israel is really, freaking hard. Sometimes the weight of knowing how misunderstood we are, how we're portrayed as this vicious, heavy-handed state (surrounded by - what? peace-loving nations?!).. it's really painful to swallow. Sometimes the sandy, dust-filled Tel Aviv breeze brings floats the scent of how much hatred there is in the world towards this home, a home I chose. Then you start reading about someone who, without connection to birth, religion, roots, simply loves us. Simply loves Israel and all things Jewish.

It's brightened my week, absolutely.
