yesterday

 I felt a little like Trelawnyd yesterday.
Trying also to be positive and to find the beauty in the ordinary.
My neighbour  invited me to coffee in the morning. She came back from England visiting 
her daughter and sister who lives there.
We had tea and cookies and a good conversation.
Than the wife of the former chief of the council cold me and told that she had a book that might interest me.
I went to take the book and had  good conversation with the former chief who is straggling his Alzheimer now but remembers well what happened 41 years ago.
I did try to be positive as hard as I can , but in both visits it was inevitable to ignore what happened
to us 41 years ago in the yom kippur war at 1973 so we poked our wounds and conclude that we can never know how strong we are and we will survive.
The book is about the the first hours of the Yom Kippur war but did not give me a clue what happened there to the people I lost there.

  1. The Yom Kippur war was when I first learned about Golda Meir and Moshe Dayan. They became very strong characters.

  5. At first I watched all the new analyses on TV of what really happened in the Yom Kippur war. Now I cannot watch then any more -- too shocking and sad to learn about all the fashlot that were made.
    I'm sorry you had personal losses in that awful war.
