books, books and more books

Since my high school years, I was always attracted to intellectual types.

When serving at the IDF I met a young intellectual man that was to be my boyfriend. At the beginning we were just friends and I was attracted to his outstanding intellectual and analytical faculties. At age 22 he already had a Cum Laude BA in physics and mathematics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and was studying his Master in Philosophy at Tel Aviv University. Today he is a professor who teaches in one of the most prestigious Universities of Europe.

In any case, what I want to state is that I always was attracted to man who read books… eventually my romance with this physician guy was not to last, since he decided to marry a previous girlfriend of him who also studied Philosophy… he was the one who INTRODUCED ME TO MY PRESENT HUSBAND, James, being aware of my dual attraction to handsome men who read books…

Today, after being married for almost sixteen years, the BOOKS are NO LONGER the OBJECT of my attraction, but on the contrary, a real BURDEN… not in vain, psychologists warn you about the major "qualities" that initially attract in a certain person being transformed with the passing of the years in GENUINE BURDENS.

In this video, taken by my eldest son, you can see exactly what I mean…
