The Land Remembers

Arrived to Ukraine today, the homeland of my parents, grandparents, and most of my great-grandparents. As the train crossed the border, I felt a sense of recognition in my body, like I was in a familiar place. I fell asleep and watched traditional Ukrainian and Jewish circle dances of long ago in my dream.

The ancestors live on in ways inside us. Today the land welcomed them back home.
