The Lion Sleeps Tonight

It was 2006 and we were preparing for the annual JEXNET (or was it still the NAA) conference and then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had a stroke.  In order to prepare for the worst I quickly put together this very amateurish PowerPoint Presentation. 8 years after going into a coma, Arik Sharon passes away – and this presentation was never refined and never saw the light of day until this morning, saved mysteriously on my hard drive, moving over at least 3 computers in that time, and released today without any editing – other than changing “1928 -2006″ to “1928-2014.”

The lion finally sleeps tonight.

Originally both presentations had the background music of Shlomo Artzi: Ha Ish Hau

Where are there more people
Like that man
That was like the weeping willows
(x2)

By the mountain footsteps, he was born by the creek
In the winter he sang among the weeping willows
In the summer among the lights of the shallow waters
His bread he spread on the creek for the fish
From the reed he shaped himself a kite
And when he became a man
From the stems of the weeping willows he built a sun-shade/ sukkah
From the fortress grey stone he built himself a house
on the creek he built a mill
He planted fields
He sent his might over the seas in merchant ships
But there is one that will rest his tools
And suddenly become a different person

Where are there more …..

By the mountain footsteps, he was born by the creek
He will wonder absent minded on the mountain or in the Poplar grove
And when he is fallen on a clear morning on his land
They will buy him a grave site
By the quiet water aquaducts

Where are there more …..

And like an ancient fortress he was at the end of the road

Where are there more …..

Israel: Vot a Country!

For those of you who read my blog (and apologize for my slackness) you might have noticed that I rarely if ever promote a particular product. Today is an exception to my self-imposed rule – and I do this because I want to and not because anyone asked me to.

You see a while back I stumbled upon a podcast – and now it has made my subway commute all the more bearable. Even more than that this podcast has really changed the way that I feel and interact with Israel – the country and the people. This really is my Promised Podcast.

I want to tell you a bit about my 4 year old son, Jonah, or as he is more formally known, Jonah Mark Bryfman.

Jonah is an energetic some might say rambunctious kid. He is also really funny. He is smart, playful and a kid who loves to share. He hates going to sleep because he loves spending time with his mummy and daddy, having them read to him, watching tv with them, and mainly just not going to sleep.

But there’s something about Jonah that is also totally awesome.
