to do something that is bigger then me or you
Its been crazy 2 weeks, not moving with the bike but my mind feel very busy.
Preparing my self and the right “ground” for Orly, the blind lady that is joining me in the next 2 weeks on a tandem bike with an escort car. A friend that volunteer to help us on the escort car canceled his joining 2 weeks before the arrival of Orly and I needed to push myself and see how we going to do that.
In the last 3 months I counted on him and 2 weeks before he got cold feet cant deal with big project and from the lemons in life I will try to make a good lemonade.
At list I was in a good place with amazing friends around me.
In the city of Adelaide I had one of the most happiest meeting in my journey, a good friend,omri, from the army time is working here toghter with his wife,adi,and hid brother,Jacky, live here and invited me (6 months ago) to be a part of the family as long as I needed.
We didn’t talk too much in the last 10years but we always knew whats going on with each other and between good friends from the army or the childhood friends there is a bond that its hard to descarivedbut you can imagine.
After dealing with long deserts ,bad weather and lonely moments I forgot how is it to feel “like home” that I got friends around me all the day and we can lough about the past, the future and the present.
I am not used to be in one place for a long time but I had amazing friends that understand my needs and know that my mind work in a different way.
The food was great and we had really great time together and I was so happy to have them in this time of the journey because I earn this meeting and it also push me for the future.
In Adelaide I meet the small and warm Jewish community in the city and they help me as much as they can with the big project that we about to do.
When you need help you see how great people can be.
People that don’t know Orly came to my presentation and helped as with money that we need in order to make this kind of a project.
A friend of Orly from Israel,asaf, will join us and its great because he knows her and her needs but its more money that coming from Orly pocket and I try to help as much as I can.
Daphne,an Israeli that working with the Jewish community her helped me a lot with her I knew that everything will be OK.
Actually I don’t have time to write you more about this weeks because Orly landed and tomorrow we start to cycle the great ocean road -1200 km from Adelaide to Melbourne where many people will join us in this amazing moments.
Wow, cycling with a blind lady for 2 weeks! Its going to be huge adventure and I hope that Orly will also dream with my open eyes.
I want to thank to jack,Omri and Adi alpron. Daphne lapidot and all the Jewish and the Israeli community in the city of Adelaide that help me to prepared to this project.
I will not forget it.
Blind project will start tomorrow! and pleas we need more help and if you can contribute to this amazing message pleas drop me a line in firstname.lastname@example.org
