Since seeing a John Ford film in JP’s class 8 years ago as an undergrad, I dreamed of going to see this landscape in real life, before I leave California… I am very lucky to have been in such a beautiful place at such a dark time. As my little heart can’t stand the horror lately, after being here I left feeling with some desire that I do still want a relationship with this country and land that I’ve lived most on, after all - a place like this, with its own dark history, could still exist as freedom and peace could. I pray for Gaza to be returned, all land to be returned, an immediate ceasefire, an eternal protection over those who have been forced out from this lifetime these last seven weeks... these photos don’t show all the tears and silence along with an immense thanks.

“Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturbed me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back... Just come back..” Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza.

truly disheartened and unclear how people can keep living without giving any acknowledgement to the Palestinian condition that as Americans, in this case, we are ALL complicit in making it happen and making it worse.

The River. Jean Renoir
“The river runs, the round world spins

Dawn and lamplight, midnight, noon.

Sun follows day, night stars and moon.

The day ends, the end begins."

“The horror and despair at so much bloody flesh, nauseating in part, and in part very beautiful, was fairly equivalent to our usual impression upon seeing one another. Simone was tall and lovely. She was usually natural; there was nothing heartbreaking in her eyes or her voice. But on a sensual level, she so bluntly craved any upheaval that the faintest call from the senses gave her a look directly suggestive of all things linked to deep sexuality, such as blood, suffocation, sudden terror, crime; things indefinitely destroying human bliss and honesty.” Bataille
