NOTE FROM ANDREW. I tend to post my reblogs here,unless of a Religious Nature. However this is an adventure during a Feast and Commemoration. SUKKOT.
Poets of Babel
By very happy coincidence, Shoshana Sarah, whom I discovered ~2 weeks ago here on WordPress lives only five buildings down from me.
It’s a funny thing… Not so long ago, I was kvetching here about not connecting with any Israelis on WordPress, despite having met so many friends throughout the world; and then, purely by chance, I stumbled upon Shoshana’s poetry group here in Jerusalem (‘Poets of Babel’).
Shoshana and I established a correspondence, and she informed me that Poets of Babel meets several times annually. I wasn’t expecting a get-together any time soon, but, as chance would have it, Shoshana arranged a poetry reading in her family’s sukkah (traditional booth for the Jewish Festival of Sukkot) on Sunday, Sept. 26; and she graciously invited me last Wednesday.
