SERENDIPITY: SEEKING INTELLIGENT LIFE ON EARTH
Although I lived abroad, I knew I could come home.
I lived in Israel, a nation I love but as controversial as any country on earth. When I arrived there, I was sure I knew something about how things could be fixed. By the time — nine years later — I left, I knew nothing except that should anything in the area get fixed, I wouldn’t be the person doing it.
I left, but it was okay. I was going home. I needed normalcy by then. Nine years in a country that is permanently just this side of war makes everyone nervous. We’d had some great days, right after the Camp David Accords were signed. I was there. I saw the cars — those big black cars from the U.S., Israel, and Egypt fly past me after signing at the King David Hotel. Israel was deliriously happy. Peace!

Thank you. Others see this as an opportunity to make things right. I’m not so sure. It could go either way. But, like you, I hope for the better parts of our nature to win in the end.
Better parts of our nature are getting pretty bloodied by golf balls and goof balls. I think the baser parts of our nature are about to encounter grounds for indictments and impeachment.
Utterly depressing, and just as true as it is depressing.
Marilyn. Carolyn’s moment raises a question. Were you also in our kindergarten class? 😂Three peas in a pod.
