OUT OF 2nd CHOICE
Choosing to know, Choosing to question, Choosing to see beyond the Black, Choosing to strive and get farther, Choosing to say goodbye to a few apprehensions, Choosing the whole, Choosing to accept what is, Choosing to see the most and not what isn’t, Choosing because of the age and not in spite of it, Choosing Israel and wanting to fly high at the same time.
Sometimes I think it’s only me, that the same thought spins only in my head, that no one will understand it and certainly not resolve it. The moment I close my eyes and fall asleep is scary; it’s frightening to say it but at the same time it’s hard to keep it to myself. There are many others that feel that way, that want to believe they can lose control and others will be there for them.

SCRATCHING THE ENDS
UNDER THE CARPET
When childhood memories float in the background and leave their mark on adolescence - innocence and evil join together. Once a stroke, once a strike.
I enjoy looking from outside into flats where the lights are on, imagining what is happening inside. Four women expose nonverbal situations of life, inside various flats.
