In the beginning was the story.
D. was a kind spirited stoner who lived in a large loft on the Industrial south side of Tel Aviv, circa mid 90’s, and introduced me to Mike Oldfield. On this day, Earth Day, and the Gregorian calendar date of my 50th birthday (Hebrew date, Iyar 5, closer to my heart, coming this year on May 9) I pause with deep gratitude to honor all beginnings and pledge love and responsibility for our Mother Earth and all the sacred stories we have get to reclaim, retell, reinterpret, reignite – for there to be a future.
Happy Earth/Birth Day. Thank you Mother in your many forms.
