Sea Package,
Ayed Arafah
Because we are from the West Bank, we miss the sea and cannot reach it because of the Occupation… I have the right to lie on the sand of the beach, to fish, to walk around the harbour and to listen to the sea gulls I have the right to hear the sound of the waves The sea is not far; I saw it from Ein Misbah in Ramallah on a clear day… I thought of reaching the sea in my own way I thought of making a temporary sea I asked my friends to bring sea water from wherever they are, and to send it to Palestine . And I put the water they sent in a big bag, which I called “Sea Package” ….a sea that carries no waves, no port, no beach…. a sea that does not have the rest of the details as it is only a mere package that perhaps might carry me to the real sea... one day.
