Photos taken this morning, the morning of my 47th birthday, at my corner, using self photography timer.

I was born Aug, 10, 1964.. at the hottest time of year here in Israel.. My first name Nira, was chosen by my father, and it comes from the word, Nir, Which means : plowed field (Nira is the female shape of the word)
My second name, Dabush means: Palms honey... I've heard once by one of my Clarinet teachers that Dabush is a drummer in Russian. (He was Russian, and I'm not playing the Clarinet anymore..)


Since my mother's birthday, about 2 weeks ago, I've heard this sentence few times...: " Do you know, how it is like to give birth to a child , on a hot day, without no air condition, with the conditions of the 60's here in Israel..As if repeating her mother's words ( my grandmother )about her own delivery...
Well.. I don't know how it is like giving birth in SUMMER'S Hot days.. ;-).. But I surely know how it is to give birth in Winter..:-)(my 2 boys)...
YES... I've heard stories of my delivery.. it took my mother 2 days to deliver me... With doctor's help at last, sitting on her stomach.. So i could get out :-))..
..............
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MYSELF...!!
Cheers to the new..!!
To be able to dream of the POSSIBLE, And it will come true.
With LOVE, From Israel
