Singalong in the Shiloh Swimming-Pool

I've read that even during the worst, the most violent days of the Israeli War of Independence, people would leisurely dine and drink coffee in the cafes of Tel Aviv. Is that the sort of think that was happening this morning in our local swimming pool, here in Shiloh?

Reading the news gives the impression that the country is in turmoil, burning, but you wouldn't know it during that short hour women had in the pool this morning. The staff had some popular classic Israeli songs blasting, the kinds of songs which have been popular for decades especially at "singalongs," and many of the women did just that. We sang along together.

These are the occupations that keep us sane and give us the strength to go on.
