Thought it would be a good idea to let people know that I have returned from Israel/Palestine. Despite what I knew already, there has been a lot I have learned from listening to those directly involved and affected by what is happening. Soon I will talk about the occupation of Palestinian land; the 750km of wall built so far; the affects this has on the people; and those who are trying to make a difference for the better. Of greater interest to you in the short term will be the photographs I would like to share with you from the trip. I saw two pieces of the politically evocative grafetti artwork by Banksy in Bethlehem for instance. These will come in time. I have work to do and my new home to sort out. I feel emotionally drained and I feel even more strongly now for the plight of the Palestinian people.
Too much politics; too much religion; too little love.
