THE COLORS WE BOTH TAKE FOR GRANTED, nice and cozy next to each other.
Before living in Israel, I had never realized how foundational the color, smell and feel of green was to me. There is a moment while coming back to MN for a visit that I remember vividly;; my parents driving me home from the airport, windows down and me feeling completely ecstatic by how much I could actually smell the color green.
Now that Ronen and I live in MN, and I am back to taking it for granted (🤦🏻♀️), I have a hard time holding onto this shock or appreciation. Instead, every time we go visit Israel, Ronen has a similar experience;; always mentioning how surprising and inescapable that sometimes dusty, sometimes bright yellow color is, always covering everything. - 8 hours ago
