Nat’s Favourite Place On Earth

By May 26, 2009Nat-news

There is a new book out by Jerry Dunn and National Geographic, which is titled “My Favourite Place On Earth”. It has gotten celebrities to talk about the places that mean the most to them, with Natalie contributing a really interesting piece on Jerusalem. Below we have a brief excerpt. You can read the full thing over here.

In the past, I’ve said that my heart is in Jerusalem, or that I feel more Jewish when I’m there. But this changes all the time, and right now I’m sort of in an “anti” phase. I think that’s one of the most intriguing things about Jerusalem and the whole country of Israel – it’s almost like a person to me. It’s like a friend, someone you love but who is so deeply flawed, fatally flawed, that your relationship changes and you go through phases over time.

It’s the only place in the world that’s like that for me, that’s really like a person whom I have a relationship with. I guess Jerusalem is a silent partner in the relationship but it speaks to me, in its own way.

    My Favourite Place On Earth (by Jutze S.)

    This morning, I’ve said that my heart is in my bed, or that I feel more human when I’m there. But this changes all the time, and right now (2 pm) I’m sort of in an “anti” phase. I think that’s one of the most intriguing things about my bed and the whole flat I live in – it’s almost like a person to me. It’s like a friend, someone you love but who is so deeply flawed, fatally flawed, that your relationship changes and you go through phases over time.

    Hmmm… I haven’t heard about an warning of death penalty in the Holly Mount for jews. What I have read is that many jews rabinos consider it good that jews aren’t allowed there: since the exact location of the “Sancta Sanctorum” of the Jewish temple is unkown, by that ban every jew avoid comiting the sacrilegy of steping in the place where the jews affirm that the presence of God dwells.
