This week’s photo prompt is a peaceful street scene, and as we head into the New Year of 2023, I am sure our world is praying for peace.
Thank you, Rochelle (click on her name for the page), for our last Friday Fictioneers of the year 2022.

To Hell and Back
Uri, do you remember the first time we came here?
It was a rotten day, a dirty place.
No, no. I think it was a happy day.
Bubbe! It was raining, cold and miserable.
Uri, my heart was singing and burning with hope.
Sara, we schlepped through the mud as humiliated donkeys.
Elation in freedom.
Oy vey ist mir, wearing our schmatte.
Mensch! Now you make me feel sad.
Sorry, my Sara, please don’t cry.
Cry! I never cried. Okay, maybe for forgiveness when we reached the kibbutz.
Look, Sara. What a wonderful place.
We built this, you adorable klutz.
