The humble farmer

July 25, 2018

In the last months, I met people who have really inspired me. People who believe strongly in what they are doing and who are extremely motivated.

Bill Murray once said: “They say elephant never forgets. What they don’t tell us is, you never forget an elephant”. It’s true. You never forget an elephant, this is why I respect this amazing animal so much. When you are close to one of them you realise the importance of taking care of them. You […]

The olive tree

November 15, 2017

The Palestinians, especially those who live in the north of the Western Bank, have a blood brother, an inseparable brother. This brother has sap instead of blood and he grasps to his land as the Palestines do. His trunk and branches design unlimited shapes. Lovers tangling in the night, Cathedrals of multiple styles and sizes, […]

When I was visiting Bethlehem I met Ann who is involved in several […]
