Tzfassers 2014-6

New works possibly revealing the spiritual influx
of my recent change of address
(and perhaps the return to my soul root)
to the holy city of Tzfass or Tzfat (Safad)
and the family ancestral home
in the Old Jewish Quarter at Alkabetz 11
where my mother, grandmother, even great grandfather

were born and raised
more than a hundred and forty years ago.
