Some of you may have heard about the bomb that went off a few hours ago in Jerusalem. Both Mark and I are OK; we were indoors when it happened, although I’m fairly sure I heard the blast.
As I’m sure you can imagine, we’re both a bit shaken, given that we live and work in what’s pretty much the middle of downtown West Jerusalem, and right now there’s not a lot of information on what’s actually going on, whether this is an isolated incident or the start of something bigger. The situation has been feeling increasingly tense in the last few months, but I don’t think there’s any reason to panic until more facts are known.
I’m afraid I don’t really have the energy or interest to keep a running update on this blog; I hope everyone understands.
