It's hard not to use those words in any occasion. I hardly have anyone to talk to myself, and often I got on my life in a sort of "Pollyana"-esque direction as if nothing ever gets in my way (but perhaps since I'm an American, I hardly have yet to face real danger as what does happen elsewhere).

a fellow musician says to you "have faith, be strong, play loud."

i especially loved the "we resist"

and in the meantime, Tel Aviv, is living out it's life as usual, well almost as usual, the city is packed with people that run away to stay with relatives and friends cause their homes are being bombed.

I went out with my sister for dinner last night, we were sitting in a quite resturant and the talks we over heard reminded me of what you just wrote a lot.

It's mind blowing what the human mind can indure and still find it's way to an half ordinery art and music conversation.

On the way back I passed a building that had a party on the roof, peopel were dancing and drinking, while big Israeli flags were handing from the balcony. I was thinking - is it OK for people to party in those times, I personaly really don't feel like it, but is it wrong for them to want to? The whole thnig had such a doom's day feel to it, party tonight cause we might be dead tomorrow.

Is it just me or does it really feel like this world is coming to an end?

in the daily star yesterday, Jim Quilty writes:
"At its most basic, pop culture a la Liban expresses itself in the matter-of-fact resilience of its citizens. Bored journalists stationed here during Lebanon's long Civil War sometimes wrote about this - usually focusing on Beirutis' capacity to party, even as the shells were falling outside."
people will continue partying here as they always did.
the 75 civil war stayed for 15 years. can you stop partying for 15 years?
i think that the world ended, but we're afraid to see it.
