Leaving Israel – from the Air – in Pictures

They say pictures speak a thousand words. As a writer, it’s so hard to trust that those 1,000 will be the ones in my heart. Leaving Israel, snapping picture after picture, I realized I was trying to take Israel with me. I have hundreds of pictures of my family…for that matter, I probably have hundreds of pictures of my land on my computer.

But these seemed terribly important for me to capture…and so I did – without words, though the writer in me keeps adding them in my head, wanting to point out – look at the fields, look at the buildings – look what we have built in this land that we love. Israel is truly a land of beauty… but I’ll stop now and put those pictures in. Not another word from me … in this post… really…. I will force myself… I will let myself…let the pictures speak. Listen to them, please – they have so much to tell you – of a land of pride and accomplishment, of incredible beauty and determination and creativity and stop…I’m stopping. This is me stopping…

  1. Israel is a stunning country….I have taken hundreds of photos each time I visit….in April I took 800….everything was in bloom. Honestly, I have never seem such a variety of flowers and colors, it was incredible! I’m going to make a collage just of the flowers…and there were dozens and dozens of different kinds. I’ve never seen this anywhere else!
