I plan go home to Tel Aviv on schedule, and here's why: when my nearest and dearest have a crisis, I want to be with them. I have just visited my brother, my daughter's family and my son's family. As far as I can tell, none of them is in crisis, and as much as I would love to be with them once a week for eternity, we've been getting along pretty well without that. Israel is my family too. I may just have to create recipes for alcoholic soups, because my war coping mechanism involves cooking.
