On my toolbar when I published a post was this quote:
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. – Gustave Flaubert
Once upon a time, I was a teenager. At that time, I started a blog. But that blog was a childish vent of things not interesting to anyone else, of little bits of interesting facts that I found on the web, and of inspiration that I wanted to share. Eventually, the need to post came more infrequently, and at some point, tapered off altogether.
Today, I hope that I am more mature, smarter, and that I write better. I did not delete my teenage blog, but I did make it author-only. My hopes for this blog are that it will well-written and of interest to many, while allowing me to share my thoughts on parenting, marriage, and the everyday busy-ness of life in general. My life is not so different than yours, probably, but it might look different on the outside, because I am in Israel. In reality, Jewish Israelis are normal people too, people just like you – and I hope to help bridge that gap in society’s mindset – with humor, knowledge, and sometimes a post that will get under someone’s skin.
And so, I welcome you to my blog and look forward to sharing this journey with you, the reader. Have fun reading, and feel free to argue with me!
