About me

Occupation In transition
Location Jerusalem, Israel
Introduction On January 5, 2001, my eighteen-year-old daughter Timora died of leukemia, after a six-year struggle. I've written a memoir, And Twice the Marrow of Her Bones, telling of her struggle to lead a normal life during her illness, and of my own journey with, then without her. This blog will share my thoughts and reflections on life lived in the shadow of loss - and in the light of hope and healing - especially those relating to resilience, that stubborn refusal to let adversity get the best of us.
