From the ‘Holy Land’ to the promised land, the ‘Lucky Country’, an all-in voyage was undertaken to seek a peaceful life choosing sparkling Sydney, the beaut ‘blue-bitch goddess’ before its year 2000 Olympic peak; a home to put down roots and a safe haven for my family far removed from the beating drums of impending war and the pressure-cooker life in Israel.

A fateful meeting on 7th December 2001 at 39 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, a two-story terrace house erected in 1870 with convict-made bricks perfect for a Moroccan restaurant with a first-floor residence, led to an existential battle about tree roots which had penetrated its sandstone foundations, destroying the overall structural integrity and adding a bulge to the east wall; for me the Western Wailing Wall.

From old Babylon, my lineage has led me to this ancient Eora homeland and whether this vast southern continent allows me, after twenty-two years of a challenging path to realise my Aussie dreams remains to be seen, but when all is said and done at the end of my life I will depart with gratitude in my heart and tears in my eyes and know that the struggle was well worth it.

2009 – This is my Diaspora

Writer: My friend Rafi, 19.9.2009

To Amir

This is my beginning

Life is a battleground. You are its foot soldier, its general of the advancing army or the retreating one, offensive or defensive. The strategist in the drill game of everyday living. 

If we know where to invade, life is a drill, the unknown is the real war. We might win some battles in advance, but lose the war on the ground.

The ground underneath our feet is shaken with the advance of time. That is the reason why the veteran knees shake with age. They have seen it all.

The mines which some lost their legs for a cause, others lost their faith along the way. They have also been ambushed by fate, ridiculed by fortune, slapped by love, held captured by immoralities.

Yet, we all soldier on in the midfield of destiny orchestrates by order in a chaotic existence with bullfighters stamina. We are all universal soldier in an army of one. When we fight, we fight it alone.

The world watch and only interfere if there is a profit in. Ministers have the power in this game we call life. Tactical errors can cost the life of one.

The army of one has charged. The battleground is perilous. The might of the army of one with god on his side. Attention! As you are a soldier.

Epilogue

I’m sorry. I learn to know that I know nothing, nothing matter nor one thing is personal, and yet, again and again, which was washed will come back for what goes around comes around.

Dear Sydney: one tricky kiss to the carpet, three-cross merits – seven years conviction each, altogether twenty one no-easy years, and soon your one-offspring.

A butt I came, Petitstic I am, and Bumper I shall return. 

Ya Elohim, keep me alive so long as living is good for me, and cause me to die when death is good for me.

I would like my ashes to be mixed with an Australian potting mix for it to be spread under the three Palm trees at the tip in Keleme, Lithuania.

All That Is is the breath inside the breath, which is more than I, Me, My, Mine, and that, too, will pass.
