Infidelity & The Call of our Soul

  I’m reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being, a remarkable novel by a literary genius, Milan Kundera. In one of the scenes, Tereza, the wife of the protagonist (who himself is a total philanderer), has sex with a stranger from a bar to see what it’s like to have sex without love. As she walked to…

I Should Have Been a Shepherd

  I don’t have many regrets in life, but here’s one. By an exceedingly strange set of circumstances (you’ll have to trust me on this one–or take me out to dinner and get me to divulge the full story), I met a woman one night in Israel that made my heart skip many a beat. Her name was…
