1. without words for now
yesterday visited some unrecognised bedouin villages in the negev – one that had been recently destroyed by israeli police last monday! – deemed “illegal settlements”.  go to : http://www.dukium.org – negev coexistence page.

2. tomorrow we finally begin the shvil (trail) – today still organising and getting ourselves to the north to start at Tel Dan or Kibbutz Dafna. we have two digital cameras two slr 35mm film cameras, one 6×6, and one 5×4 camera, as well as a video camera and an audio recorder – not to mention film, and camping gear! these first two weeks are a test of all the strength we can own.
merry times for you whatever they be for. christmas here almost a non-event. perhaps we’ll be in nazareth to gawk at the christians! who knows. more later when this little mind has cleared herself a little bit.
loveyasall.
