Midnight Stroll Through The Old City Of Jerusalem

This late night walk, together with a special friend of mine, forms the most extraordinary memory. The Old City of Yerushalayim contains a certain presence that is indescribable- it is a presence that fills a human's soul. It is this presence that I find myself craving on a daily basis. I have come to see that I have travelled to the Old City often in the past few weeks - more often than expected - and I have realized that this is due to my inability to believe that I am now living so close to such a powerful place. The Western Wall and these walks through the Old City of Jerusalem, at various times of the day, are two of the things that I hold so dear to my heart.


Golden All Over 


 Icy Nights and Icy Drinks 


The Moon Shining As Bright As Ever Above A Synagogue 


 Friendship At The Western Wall- no stronger bond. 


Myself in the Old City 


 A Midnight View Of The Kotel (Western Wall) 


 My thought one week ago: "How special would it be to see a white dove at the Western Wall"
Two days later; I see not only one, but two, white doves there. These small miracles are evident wherever you go and with whoever you meet in this holy land. 


 I Can Forever Stand There and Absorb the Presence 


 The Happiest Smile I Own: My 'Jerusalem' Smile


 Life 



This is The Place Where I Am Most Proudly South African
