I missed you!
Looking back on the last 6 weeks, I see many highlights. One of my new "art-online-friends", Shulli Goitein, took me on a day trip to Jerusalem. We were going up to see the end of the year exhibit of the graduating class at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. But before that we were to meet at her aunt's home in a wonderful neighborhood of Jerusalem called the German Colony, "Moshava Germanit" established by the German Templer Sect. It is a charming neighborhood with old stone houses and beautiful vegetation all around.
Shulli's aunt is Ayala Gordon, one of the pioneers of art in the burgeoning State of Israel. She established the Youth Wing of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. A curator, educator and author, she worked at bringing the love and appreciation of art to the youth of Israel.

I was so honored to be invited to meet Ayala Gordon, a true highlight of my trip.
