CultureBuzz converses with Astrith Baltsan - Israel's Anthem: "HaTikva" (The Hope)
http://www.facebook.com/CultureBuzzIsrael

As passionate a private detective, as she is a pianist, musician, and educator, and a Zionist, Astrith Baltsan went on an 8-year-quest tracking Israel's National Anthem origins and sources. Since then, she's sharing her fascinating findings with many, both in Israel and abroad, via a book and a performance ...
 

Please  work on the following aspects of hope in your life:

a. Recall situations in your life when you were in a difficult situation (eg major health issues, loss of a spouse, or somebody close to you) and you managed to overcome the challenging situation
    - what have you learned from these experiences...

b. What do you hope will happen to make the next 12 months better (more joyous) than the last 12 months. 

    - What do you plan to do in the next            year that you missed the                              most since Corona started (eg travel)

Also, please observe situations where JOY or other Middot  occur (e.g equanimity, gratitude, kindness, patience. anger, humility, etc..)


Please journal and be ready to share.
