Tel Aviv

street Y + O

The white city has gone gray over time.  Once-pristine sandstone buildings show years of wear and tear on their faces.  Renovation is rampant – indicator of a culture not ready to cave in amidst the struggles of middle eastern existence.  Life – chaim – is everywhere.

I just returned from another powerful visit.  Reflecting, I focus on the beauty of paradox, the fine thread of “either-or”  that permeates this wonderful city.

October breezes from the Mediterranean, soften the humidity.  It is pleasantly cool in the mornings and evenings with enough warmth to enjoy a day seaside or wandering, walking, sun steady. A seasonal array of flora dress the sidewalks.  Growth continues as does incessant pruning of giant-leafed greens.  I step over it, looking down, then up, not to miss nature’s show of color and shape and the hand of anonymous artists – tel aviv their canvas.

This is some of what my eye and my camera caught…
