Isn’t Israel something? A place so beautiful it hurts. It taught me quite a few things but mostly to slow the fuck down. I am not going to go all hippie philosopher on you but I am going to tell you this, living the moment is so much more important than capturing it and uploading to Instagram. I travelled around Israel for two weeks and I didn’t end up taking too many images (literally just a few more than I posted here) simply because I absorbed every experience like a sponge. I really and truly enjoyed lingering in the moment, allowing myself to feel grateful, surprised, appreciated, biting and chewing slowly instead of an instant swallow – the latter is something the workforce and educational facilities trained me to do: quantity AND quality AND quickly. Faster, Edita, faster. Israel got me out of the sausage machine and back to basics; to inhale, exhale and enjoy all that’s right here and right now.
I ended up wearing this Kain dress for most of my stay, it’s perfect in its simplicity, requires zero thought and gives you the possibility to mould it into whatever you want. In the previous post it’s styled to look like a glamorous evening dress, here it plays the role of a functional basic – a must-have when absorbing high-levels of otherworldly beauty that is the landscape of the Promised Land.
I prefer not to touch any political or religious subjects but I am going to say one thing: the sight of the Wailing Wall, the most beautiful mosque right next to it along with stunning historical churches all around the Old City Jerusalem make for a gorgeous and peaceful sight.
