Catching it all...

Trying to make sense of all the noise is not the simplest of tasks. There is a lot going on at the same time. Today is a prime example. It is truly strange and slightly remarkable to be in Israel at such a pivotal moment in the electorate. All of a sudden the leader of the pack, the incumbent Prime Minister falls victim to what appears to be an unrecoverable stroke. The streets of Tel Aviv today seemed to be overwhelmed by a sense of the unknown. Shop-owners glued to the news channels, I really wish I understood what they were saying. All in all though, people seem to be relatively unconcerned about the entire affair. I’m bubbling over with all these questions about what the future is going to look like, how the road map is going to be altered. People I’ve spoken with thus far are not too concerned though, they are mostly concerned with the health of Mr Sharon, and seem to be of the opinion that we will see what happens when the time comes.

More later...
