The blog is two years old today. To say I feel grateful does not do justice to the privilege of connecting with so many readers, and writers, around the world. And (as a smart shrink once put it) how do you know what you think until you hear yourself say it? If you are moved to write a note, or a suggestion, I'd be pleased to receive it: firstname.lastname@example.org. And you might consider sending friends an email subscription, or subscribing yourself if you have not already done so. It is really the best way to keep up with posts, which may become less frequent as I get down to a new book project. (Just write your or your friend's email address in the box to the right.)
Here is a little present to mark the blog's birthday. It is Matti Caspi's song about a dove that spreads its wings and flies, on and on, over the hills of Gilboa.
