The quote in the subject line for this entry is from Amos Oz. I read his book, A Tale of Love and Darkness, over the two months I spent living in the Old City in Jerusalem. The book touched me very deeply- it is the account of Oz’ childhood in Jerusalem, the growth of Israel, its wars and relations with Arab neighbors, from his child’s eyes and from the eyes of Oz as Israel’s leading novelist and peace activist.
As I read the book I realized I wanted to contact Oz and tell him about the trainings in Nonviolent Communication I was offering in Israel andPalestine.
