Organ donor's card

This morning I was invited to add my photo to a Facebook gallery of Israeli trendsetters who showcase their organ donor's card gallery. Obviously, I agreed, since organ donations are an explosive issue in Israeli society, as orthodox Jews oppose to harming the wholeness of the dead body, which means they oppose to donating organs. So there is always this or another argument about this topic in the news or media, and I feel it is important to take a stand.

Since this is a serious issue (too serious, perhaps) I decided to ask Nick the puppet to pose with me. This is one of the photos we took (gosh, I love my camera's remote control!).

I signed my card while going to the hospital with Mamisha, while she was getting chemo. It seemed that the moral thing to do, when my mother is being treated for cancer, is to add my little bit of good karma for her and all the other people who are suffering. It was the right thing to do.

I hope that you, wherever you are, carry your local version of an organ donor's card. We can help make this life a little more beautiful, especially during the holiday season. It is one simple thing we can all do in order improve the world we live in (and Nick thinks so too).

My favorite place on earth is burning

Israel is currently facing the greatest natural catastrophe since its establishment - An enormous forest fire has set the north of the country ablaze, with the entire Mount Carmel burning for over 3 days now and no end of it in sight.

So far, 41 people had died in the fire. Most of them prison guards who were on their way to evacuate a prison on one of the mountain tops when their bus got caught in a fire trap and burnt to the ground. Entire towns and villages have been evacuated and burnt. The animal population is partially extinguished. Today, my favorite place in the world has died. The Carmel Resorts Spa and Hotel has been burning since noon and shows no sign of the fires burning out, putting the entire area at risk.

The last time I was there was quite a while ago, on my 30th birthday. I went alone to enjoy the quiet and the view. It will be years before I am able to go there again, but I am certain they will rebuild the place, as they will the entire area.

All this
