It occurred to me that with so much of this website being devoted to politics and the Islamist threat, we should probably use some of our space contemplating the simple pleasures of life. So, today, when both the United States of America and the NRP-Bayit Yehudi Party are facing the vote that will decide their foreseeable future, I figured it was a good time to contemplate the notion of having a cup of coffee and reading the morning paper with your dog sitting in your lap.
The picture was taken in downtown Jerusalem this week, and in my humble opinion spells out the idea of civilization most successfully.
We have cats, so we can only do the coffee and paper thing with them at home. But I assure you it is just as civilized.
