I am working on a post about a recent adventure to Israel. It could be called a misadventure, really. I think it is a story worth telling and worth your time to read. I think we are all recovered now, nearly a week later. So while I put that together, here is a little sound video.
SOUNDS of LIFE HERE
Ramallah is nothing if not a city FULL of fantastic sounds. My neighborhood is on the outskirts of the city, but over the months I have noticed that we have a rich soundscape here. I captured my favorites on video (morning birds to evening prayer and everything in between) over about a month period and here is a 3 minute video of the sounds of our life here. Really, these sounds are so singular to Ramallah that I know I will hear them when I am 80 and immediately be back in this house with my 1.5 year old Laila and 3.5 year old Sufyan.
