I have seen for the first time in 100 years of conflict, the two peoples - the Israeli people and the Palestinian people - are ahead of their leaderships. -
I found this poem by David Whyte tonight and put it up next to one of my favorite Israeli authors, Amos Oz. The poem literally screams into my life, my work and my upcoming journey to Israel and Palestine. "..you come to a place whose only task is to trouble you with tiny but frightening requests..." I am already wondering what frightening requests I may find along the road to meetings, olive trees and holy sites. These are the "questions that have no right to go away."
