Dear Natalie,
 
I just woke up from a lovely nap. The flight is great and in two hours I'll be landing in Israel. I can't wait to see you and Jerusalem again. I hope we can go out for a great dinner tonight. You pick.
 
Will David join us? Will we go shopping tomorrow?
 
I hope we go and find your mystery woman also.  I always thought you had a bit of Nancy Drew in you!  Do you remember in college how you guessed who was sleeping with whom or who had a crush on someone? At first I thought you were psychic but then I realized you picked up on all sorts of tiny cues that I missed, like watching people's eye movements.  Don't wait for me to see what is on that piece of paper that is in the Prayer book.  Maybe someone in the hotel can translate the page.  Anyway, I'm ready to go adventuring with you.
 
Guess what movie I watched before I dozed off? Mamma Mia.
 
It wasn't as good as the play but still I love all the songs and the energy and the colors were gorgeous. Greece isn't that far from Israel. Maybe we can go over there for a few days and explore a Greek Island. How does that sound? Maybe we'll have an adventure there, also! Who knows what is around the next corner?
 
I'll do anything fun! It is such a relief for me to be away. Away from everyone and everything! Gary is great but I even need a break from him. He looked so sad when he took me home last night. But I'm not sad. I am almost relieved not to be seeing him for a few weeks. It's all too new-I mean my divorce-for me to be really ready for another permanent relationship. I don't even like the word 'permanent' right now. I want to be free as a bird. Feeling good about myself. Feeling alive. Making up for lost time!
 
Janet is handling any customers that come my way while I'm away. Everything is in order. I didn't even leave any food to rot in the frig! I am ready! Let's have the best time we have ever had!
 
Love you,
 
Maggie
