It's NaBloPoMo Time...
Meanwhile , I have been searching sites for an apartment for my son and his family, since he told me he was actively looking. I placed an ad on Janglo, am searching Homeless (isn't that a great name for an apartment hunting site?) and other places. So if you are familiar with southeast Jerusalem (Talpiyot, Abu Tor, Arnona, Katamon, Baka, etc.) and know of something nice--it has to be nice--(3-4 rooms, under 3,000 NIS/month), please comment or email me. If it meets his criteria, I'll pass it on to my son.
In the interim, D. H. has already applied to over one-hundred jobs, some within, but most mainly outside of the state in which we live--the majority, on the East Coast. I don't really want to move back there, but if he is offered a good position, as they say, "beggars can't be choosers" (I actually hate that expression. And disagree with it: beggars can be choosers; the choice is always yours, no matter what.).
There are certain reasons why we still need to be here, in galut--as opposed to there, in Eretz HaKodesh--for a year or two--which I won't go into here. But, ultimately, the long-term plan is to return. . .
