Aristotle once said, “The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.”
That became very clear to me when I decided to take a trip to Israel with our daughter and our two grandsons.
My husband, Bob declined to join me. He had traveled extensively all over the Middle East and wasn’t fond of the desert in the summer.
So, I suggested, in an insightful burst of Aristotelian logic, that this would be the perfect time for him to sort out our storage locker.
This was going to be quality time with my family in Israel for me. Storage locker for him.
While I was away, it seemed like the perfect time to clear out the mountain of boxes filled with multiple film prints of the nearly 2,000 commercials he directed when he had his commercial production company.
So, in the spirit of equality, I went to the Western Wall in The Old City and my husband sorted through thousands of feet of film in a dingy cubicle.
I went to Dead Sea and my husband took reels to a company that transfers films to digital files.
I went to the Israel Museum and was mesmerized by the antiquities. My husband unearthed five of the dozens of commercials in which I had appeared during the 1960’s when we were first married.
Here are a few of my mini epics that Bob excavated from the depths of our ancient storage locker.
