JERUSALEM OF GOLD AND THE BIG APPLE

TWO CITIES, TWO WORLDS

Once again, WordPress is offering to rehome us to not one, but the two cities of our choice. This is easy for me. I’ll take Jerusalem, golden Jerusalem of my heart … and my home town, New York, New York (it IS a wonderful town).

Where I used to live.

Where I used to live.

I assume you’ll be offering a package which includes  attractive housing options as well as first-class plane fare on demand. I expect appropriate home furnishings and a fashionable, yet comfortable wardrobe along with a generous stipend.

That would work for me and my husband. You are paying his way too, correct? All my good friends and close family are coming too. Not leaving them behind a second time. Once was more than enough to last this entire lifetime.

Naturally, suitable transportation will be provided at each location. You know … cars, taxis, limos as needed? And support personnel? Cleaning staff, cooks, personal assistants? Dog walkers?

This is going to be our reward for a long life of hard work and challenges no one should have to face, so I’m expecting great things.

Thanks for your kind offer. I’m won’t bother to pack my bags. Your people will be in touch with my people. They can make all the necessary arrangements. Have a good day and thank you again.

I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.

As a passing thought, would you consider a third option? Perhaps a charming Caribbean Island state? St. Martin? Aruba? One of the Virgin Islands? Plus an occasional jaunt to Europe. I’m not greedy, but if you’re paying …

    • I just decided one day. Literally, out of the blue. I was beginning a divorce and I thought “Ding ding ding! I’m going to Israel!” There’s history there and an abortive attempt when I was 17 that didn’t work out. I think it was one of those places I always wanted to go. Not to visit, but to BE there.

    • It was awesome living there and a privilege. It is a very special place, probably why they have been fighting over it for thousands of years. Every day of the nearly 9 years I lived there I was grateful. I dream of it often.

  2. You are risk-friendly, not because of the cities, but the risk you are taking letting WordPress organise it all. you know sometimes they are not so good at organising. otherwise. New York an time please. Jerusalem would fascinate me probably. I would love to go there and see it all.
