Every Age

"Every age has its turn

Every branch of the tree has to learn
Learn to grow find its way
Make the best of this short-lived stay

Take this seed, take this spade
Take this dream of a better day
Take your time, build a home
Build a place where we all can belong

Some things change, some remain
Some will pass us a notice by
What to focus on to improve upon
In the face of our ancient tribes

Feels so clear, feels so obvious
To each one of their own
But we all live together
Keeping what tide and what we have sown

We don't choose where we're born
We don't choose in what pocket or form
But we can learn to know
Ourselves on this glowing lil void

Take this mind, take this pen
Take this dream of a better land
Take your time, build a home
Build a place where we all
can belong."

ECIS conference

Will still need a lot of time to digest everything i've experienced in this last week at the DC and the ECIS 2014 in Israel. The settings for the doctoral consortium, previous to the conference, couldn't have been more inspiring: Midreshet Sde Boker, a "place for research, education and inspiration. (…) a Kibbutz located in the Negev desert, south to Tel Aviv.”
