Operation Protective Edge
not a war. no. an Operation.
Red alerts sound
Booms. and quiet
How do I spend my time?
I am doing intensive puppet therapy.
As I do during such times and also as I do in regular times, but then only on Saturdays, the only days I have available for foam rubber, paint and glue.
How does it work?
When I work on making puppets, I am focused. Time is irrelevant. Life is good.
puppets await further body parts
Do I like interruptions?
When I am asked to speak about the current not-War situation: how I am, if the kibbutz was targeted, how many red alerts we’ve had, I prefer not to go there.
Back to foam rubber shaping and the artistry of a paintbrush on an eyeball.
It all connects with contact cement.
What are the signs of happiness?
My paintbrushes stand drying beside my toothbrush. A sign of life!
