“Truth is indestructible. It seems history shows (and it’s the same way today) that the innovator is more often than not met with some degree of condemnation; usually according to the degree of departure from the prevailing modes of expression or what have you. Change is always hard to accept…. Quite often they are the rejects, outcasts, sub-citizens, etc. of the very societies to which they bring so mush sustenance… Whatever the case, whether accepted or rejected, rich or poor, they are forever guided by that great and eternal constant – the creative urge. Let us cherish it and give all praise to God.”
John Coltrane

Coltrane - The Story of a Sound

Because it is ours!

A story about a family that “returned” to Israel after 21 years. I put the quotes in because in my mind these people never really left Israeli society, they were only away from its physical borders. However I am posting this on the heels of my previous post … for this one quote:

“Yes, here, in this country, which is so difficult and full of questions marks, but also has one big exclamation mark. Because it is ours!”

The fear and inevitable aggression can be so subtle …
