Something Totally Different
If you looked at my reading list this summer you would hardly be shocked to find out that I read about and love the Beatles (read Beatles Gear: All the Fab Four's Instruments from Stage to Studio last night). I also read nonfiction (Yuval Noah Harari, for example). I read blogs, magazines, political commentary, and Israeli media (all stuff that educates my selections for this Bulletin). At the bottom of that list comes fiction. There, I said it. Call it my Da Vinci Code, my Portnoy’s Complaint - it’s a fact (not fiction).
So with that in mind here (in bullet #1 no less) is a fiction piece called "Mother Tongue" written by Dorit Rabinyan for Tablet Magazine that I thought I’d share (honestly because of how much I liked this paragraph): "My mother believed that the very question—'where to?'—ruined the entire purpose of her leaving the house. With all her heart, she believed that if she were to declare her destination out loud, something would go wrong, something would get out of hand, and her entire trip would be in vain. This is why she pretended never to hear the question.”
Did I lose you? Was this a good choice? Please read responsibly and do share your thoughts.
