On Friday, as I rode along the boardwalk overlooking the Mediterranean in the glorious midday sunshine I felt overwhelmed with gratitude for being able to live here. Stopping along the way for a cold beer and some live music I soaked in the sights and sounds that surrounded me. People are happy and relaxed, enjoying life with friends and family. Riding through a park I watched Jewish and Arab children playing together, running and laughing through a fountain. I wish so much that people outside of Israel could have seen Tel-Aviv through my eyes that day.
