Chiam moves on
I learned a great deal about art and myself from reading My Name is Asher Lev, which is now ingrained in my senses. The author, Chiam Potok passed away today. It is days like these that you wished you had reached out and said thank you, at the very least.
I just finished reading Wanderings - History of The Jews and I must say that is was a phenomenally astounding and educational read. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in its subject matter. In reading this book, not only did I see my own ignorance but that of the world in general. To understand history is to understand oneself. "Dare to know."
