This online journal is an experiment. I'm privileged to witness an aspect of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that's not always covered in mainstream media -- life in the West Bank -- and thought some of what I see and hear would be important to share. Otherwise, this is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, and let you know I'm still alive. I plan to update a few times a week. I will be posting digital photos. Please let me know what you think. I'd like to hear from you!
