Night Lights

One week left in Israel as of today.  It’s surreal.  I feel like I’ve just gotten here, and I’m about to pack up and leave again.  My emotions are a jumble; I can’t imagine leaving my friends and my love, but Boston is calling to me.  Israel is my homeland, but Boston is my home.  I’ll be spending Christmas week in England with my family, and then home to the USA.  So here’s the last (or second-to-last) entry in my Israel photo diary…

And with that, I leave you with the wisdom of Martin Luther King Jr., “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Embrace holiday cheer, and spread love and light to all.  Happy holidays from me to you, XO
