The following slideshow incorporates black and white photography, poetry, and a classic song by Marlene Dietrich. I compiled the majority of the work during my recent stay in Berlin. En-route to Israel, via Scotland and Ireland, Germany was the last stop on my improvised book tour. We arrived in Berlin at a seemingly dark hour. Obama was in town, the NSA scandal had just leaked, the Syrian war raged on, and there was a full moon. I sought to capture moods.
