Nir-Oz, January 6th, Operation Cast Lead

Noisy, noisy night

The Air Force was busy last night, and all this morning. The sound  of constant thuds and booms. We’ve had one Tzeva Adom this morning, a few booms about a minute later,  and I’m not sure what else I’ve been hearing on this side of the Strip.

Our kids are returning this evening from their various locations. They’ve been offered another trip to a more northerly kibbutz, but mychildren are utterly tired of being away from home. If we’re here, they want to be as well.

It’s definitely time to start some kind of learning program here on the kibbutz. How else will things ever start to come back to regular living?

The Ma’ale Habsor Principals are setting up an online learning system, where each teacher will be able to direct students and supervise assignments. Teachers will have at their disposal a site with a forum for discussions.

This puts the onus on me to snap into educational frame of mind and set up worksites with some Hebrew instructions for easier accessibility. I’d already set up something but through the initial stages of building and re-building, that work has been lost.

Meanwhile, the noise outside continues. Today’s news is not great. Soldiers have been wounded due to ‘friendly fire’ from a tank which misfired and hit a structure where soldiers were meeting.

On the sweet side of life, the aloe is growing, and the weather is absolutely gorgeous. What a strange time this is.

    My dear dear friend,

    What does a woman who runs with the wolves do at times such as these? We call to the wild woman within, and act according to our gut. Our gut that tells us when to be silent and when to write, our gut that tells us when to be still and when to run, our gut that tells us to hold on to our children all-ways.

    I love you wild woman.

    namaste
    and dohiya (peace!)
    wb xo!
