About Me

I moved from dank, dark North Manchester, U.K. to Karmiel, Western Galilee, Israel in March 2010. It is, believe me, one of the sunniest, loveliest towns on earth. With a background in local Jewish journalism I continue to write freelance. I manage several blogs, have  appeared on Technorati and Blogcritics and now contribute to the online magazine, 'Live Encounters'. My main blog is Alwayswriteagain (http://wwwalwayswriteagain.blogspot.com

Sunshine and Shadow On One of Israel's Saddest Days

I had intended to start this blog more than three months ago.

I'll explain why I'm so late another time.

Suffice to write that this Holocaust Remembrance Day morning is one of sunshine and shadow here in Karmiel, Israel's Galilee.

What's more, at precisely 10.00 a.m. - unlike customary Israeli time-keeping - the memorial siren sounded with plangent awfulness. What seemed like an eternity was no more than  three minutes. However, it was dreadful and made me tremble.

The rest -  today  - will be silence.
