Album ::: Ana Casas Broda - "This work is the result of my need to find my roots and an identity. The process of making the book became an exploration in many ways. I submerged myself in my own diaries and those of my grandmother and once again discovered that we share a profound need to capture time through words, photographs, tapes, film and videos. And these objects allow us to see our life cycle"  (Via artnudes).

This is what I'm getting  from the hosting company:

"The domain was set to be renewed however apparently there is a problem with the regsitrar and the domain is not being allowed into the cart to be renewed".

"I am talking with Enom about your domain, it will be settled very soon. Right now it is expired with no option to renew, I am working on that so I can renew it for you. Please, bear with me".

Does this sound right?! What should I do?

Dan Chamizer - Artist & quizmaster

Ein Hod - The artists' village at the foot of Mount Carmel is celebrating it's 50th anniversary. In the fifties, a group of artists  decided that Ein Hod would be a place where they could work, build studios and workshops, and form a creative environment for art and education.  Ein Hod turned into the only artists' village in Israel, one of the few in the world, where artists live and create in every artistic media from the visual arts, to theater, music and literature.

Family 'proud' of suicide bomber. " Hanadi Tayssir Jaradat, 29, who worked as a lawyer in the centre of the West Bank town of Jenin, was a devout Muslim who would assiduously pray and read the Koran, her parents said".

A young woman walks into a crowded restaurant and clicks away the lives of 19 men, women, young children and tiny babies...  What's there to say?!? 

How do you protect yourself emotionally against this  craziness?! How do you adjust to this kind of routine?!

Sometimes we joke about it as a way to cope, like the other day my  son Danny wanted to  borrow his brother's jeans to go out and Oded was not sure he wanted to let him have the jeans saying he likes them too much and is afraid he might not get them back... the jeans!

I'm returning to work today after the Yom Kippur holiday and I'm dreading it because I'm sure a long and difficult day awaits me with all the  stories that'll be  coming in about  Saturday's  'attack' at the Maxim restaurant for Friday's newspaper and since Haifa is a very small city, I'm also sure we all personally know people who were at the restaurant on Saturday. All in all I should be grateful that my family is safe.
