Haifa update...all is currently quiet on the northern front
Well it sure is an interesting time to be living in the north of Israel. Residents of Haifa have been directed to stay in safe rooms/shelters for today due to the tense situation and bomb treats from Lebanon. The university is quiet, but that is very typical for a friday and the start of shabbat. A friend has invited me to go to see her family in Jerusalem and I am happy to leave haifa for a few days in hope that things calm down a bit here. The atmoshere here is subtly peaceful but uncertain. Amidst it all I am calm and getting a lot of journaling and writing done. Will keep you posted how things develope.
