AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, I AM ALREADY HOME OVER A WEEK SO DON'T LET THIS CONFUSE YOU! FINALLY FINISHED IT TILL NEXT TIME!
Some events were big, some small but all important! Following are the various items I didn't include in the prior postcards.
|Lauren loving her dog!|
|Our house is on left front. A shanda!|
Yes, Herbie, Moses and I saw it here in Jerusalem. Biggest theater I have ever been to but Moses says there is one this size in Fremont. The main floor has restaurants and a few theaters and the basement has more refreshment lines than I have ever seen! Furthermore, it is open on Saturday/Shabbat, a big surprise! Enjoyed film tho I thought the ending was a bit too much like all other violent cartoonish movies.
|1000s of ceramic sunflower seeds|
arena, Ai Weiwei's questions may be more relevant than ever: Is what we are told true? Is what we see real? Maybe, Maybe not..."
|Ai's trees were both inside and out|
In Full Color: 60 Years of Design by Dan Reisinger shows the work of the graphic designer who designed the logos for El Al Airlines and Teva pharmaceuticals to name just a couple.
Ilit Azoulay explored the museum both behind in the storerooms and in front. She photographed items and made photo collages that show amazing pieces most people have never seen.
No Place Like Home shows "rooms of a house exploring domesticity, immigration, displacement, and gender roles."
But my favorite moment was watching a young man approach a very real looking man in the hall. His parents came looking for him while I was cracking up!
As always, Duane Hanson stopped these people
dead in their tracks!
After three drivers refused to take us with the meter, this adorable, youthful acting 70-year-old took us with pleasure! We delighted in his stories of being married to his third wife, (the first two died) a young Filipina who takes care of "old" people and when she gets mad at them takes it out on him! Grandchildren tell him he is never serious and he responds "Why should I be?" The army told him in '66 he couldn't be a pilot because he wasn't serious enough! Twenty minutes of laughter went a long way!
|Circle in rear Hannukiah; hedges Har Herzl and menorah.|
Theodore Herzl had the original idea for the State of Israel but didn't live to see it. He died at 44. We walked around his tomb as well as those of latter day Israeli dignitaries. It also serves as a military cemetery with soldiers buried according to their wars. We took Moses to the film show inside that we had seen a few years ago. A very clever depiction of Herzl's life and the beginning of the State. Good for all ages.
