I’m not sure yet what this blog’ll be. A place to hash out ideas, publish my not-so-secret diary, ask questions, record observations, disseminate useful info, whatever. It’s also, obviously, a way to keep in touch with folk as I (at least for now) prepare to spend a year’s study in a galaxy far, far away.
If you read this blog (often, occasionally, whatever) I very much encourage you to post and comment and reply to other people’s comments, disagree, argue, whatever. This format is designed to be more of a dialogue than a monologue, and on the friends-and-family tip, it’s nice on this end to know who’s out there and feel more in touch.
If there’s a piguah (that is to say, a bombing) in Jerusalem, I’ll do my best to get to a computer and post here that I’m OK as soon as I can. I can’t promise that it will happen as quickly as some would like–I might be in class, I might not have heard about it immediately, I might even (heaven forfend) be out having a life. But I will try to be mindful of the fact that there might be some worried loved ones out there.
That’s all I can think of right now…………….
