Two Months in New York

We have been in New York since December 1 and will return to Melbourne on February 2, 2009. I write to you from a small mailing storefront on Broadway on the upper West side that is staffed by three young Egyptian men with whom I share my print outs calling us to demonstrate against the Israeli war on the trapped people of Gaza. My time at the computer is short--and I will write about the fullness of our time here when once again, the silences of Fitzgibbon Avenue replace the roar of life I have found once again on my old streets. To all who have found their way to my words in this world of so many words, thank you.

Dearest Joan, I was thinking of you today, and then strangely your blog popped up as I was looking for something on the internet. I hope you enjoyed your time in New York, and I hope the heat and the bush fires back home haven't caused you or your family any harm. Take care! Lots of love from a snowy Berlin, Kate Davison.
