As I sit here listening to the General Assembly of the United Nations regarding the resolution to recognize Palestine, I notice I have a visitor to my blog from Palestinian Territories and this phrase in my stats, associated with this visitor: "Theresa and I were in the vineyard between the flowering apple trees and had lot of fun :)." Yes, the smiley face was part of the search. Now, I don't spell my name with an 'h,' but even good friends forget sometimes, and I have never been in a vineyard with anyone, an orchard, yes, but not a vineyard. I have to say, the idea is very intriguing and I am not opposed to it, not at all. This is the post that his search led him to, whether he was heading there or not:
Thank you for visiting my blog, however inadvertent it might have been. I am honored.
And the vote to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer state was just announced:
Yes. This is a good day. A good step forward.
