A car drives by my window at eight minutes past midnight, the music blasting, reminding me to go to sleep. I feel a stab of guilt at my needless being awake at this hour.

The music is Hebrew. I'm in a Jewish land. I'm in the Holy Land, precious to G-d and precious to His people. A wave of joy and gratitude washes over me and I melt in its presence.
