  • As challenging as this morning’s run was, it was a beautiful morning to go running.
  • I watched this music video with my daughter this evening, and it struck me that not a lot has changed in the ±30 years since this came out.
  • It was a fresh morning for a walk in Modi’in, Israel. I went for a short walk before work, and enjoyed a cool start to the day. Just a day in the life of many residents of my city. #adayinthelife
  • This is awesome! #virtualmeetings
  • My weekend has become all about geeking out with Obsidian, Roam Research and methodologies for creating dynamically linked personal knowledgebases.
  • TIL today: It’s possible to add emoji to Micro.blog using Unicode for emoji (at least in Custom CSS). I was customising my blog’s Custom CSS, and couldn’t seem to add emoji directly. @manton pointed me in the right direction, and something like this works: content: "U+1F4AC";
  • I really like the Obsidian text editor. The new Obsidian Publish is really interesting. As the team adds features like custom domain and CSS support, it could become a super lightweight static site publishing option too.

Horrifying COVID-19 infection rate ahead of Israeli lockdown

Israel is going into another national lockdown this weekend, for three weeks. It’s controversial (as are most things in Israel these days), and the cost to our economy will likely be substantial. At the same time, our COVID-19 infection rate seems to be out of control.

Kangaroos in Israel

My Summer vacation has gone by so quickly, as vacations often do. One of the many things we did was to take a drive up north to see kangaroos in Israel at Gan-Garoo, an Australian Park … in Israel.

Kicking off my Summer vacation

Today is the first day of my Summer vacation, and I’ve started it with an unexpectedly appealing drink in a park with our daughter while we wait for our son to finish a lesson nearby.

A Minecraft Dungeons Adventurer’s Life

I purchased Minecraft Dungeons for the Nintendo Switch a month or two ago, primarily for our kids. They’re Minecraft fanatics, and they’d been looking forward to this game since they first saw the announcement. I was also curious whether this was a game that I could enjoy?

Adolescent sunflowers

My wife and son are growing various plants on our balcony, including three sunflowers. As with most adolescents, they are tall, gawky, and show great potential!

Light at the end of a short tunnel

I went for a walk to do some shopping this morning. One of the cool benefits of our new city center is a convenient, short tunnel to the mall. It was nice to be out, roaming around the city a little, even with a mask taped to my face (it stops fogging up my sunglasses!). […]

17 years and I miss my father every day

My father passed away 17 years ago, today (at least based on the Hebrew calendar – he passed away on 12 July 2003). This week we also join our cousins, and aunt in mourning our uncle who passed away last week.

Reality tapping you on the shoulder

My family suffered a tragic loss this week due to the coronavirus. Last night, I read Om Malik’s post “The Pain of Distance“, and noticing reality tapping you on the shoulder – If this is how I feel, I can’t even internalize how my mom must be feeling. She said it is cold. She didn’t […]

Tragedy of Normalcy in the Coronavirus Shadow

This coronavirus is an insidious thing. It pulls families apart when they desperately need to be together. A cliché in Israel is the phrase: “הכל בסדר” – “Everything is ok”. It isn’t, and it won’t be for a while yet.

All the races of Middle Earth

I enjoyed this introduction to the various races of Middle Earth: I’m very tempted to try figure out which of Tolkein’s books delve into the history of Middle Earth, before the events of The Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings. Well, I know there are earlier books. I have a little research to work out […]

Trees are like puppies

I run past young trees like these on one of my routes, and each time I can’t help but think that these trees are like puppies. Just like puppies have oversized paws, these trees seem to have oversized leaves that they’re going to grow into over time.

Free fall

The world feels more than a little crazy at the moment. Relative to what 2020 has been so far, that’s saying a lot. Lately, I’ve felt a bit like we’re in free fall, pretending that the air rushing past us as we hurtle down is just a refreshing breeze on a Spring day. It’s almost as if we’re all desperately hoping it can be ok again, faking it until we make it (if we do).
