Home from the Army
It's Hagai's first Shabbat home from the base in three weeks. He got home this afternoon and now, because of the terror attack in the south, has been called back to base. Aside from the disappointment -- his entire rucksack of clothing that he'd been wearing for the last three weeks is in the washing machine. Now what?
I find myself unable to concentrate on doing anything whenever there's an attack. I just move from task to task aimlessly, unable to function.
Funny place that we live. There's an expression in Hebrew -- it "sucks the juice out of you." Yup, that's it.
