Ballot box, blue and white

.

 B is for ballot box in my village's polling station.
My ballot joins millions of others that were or will be dropped into these simple blue cardboard boxes today.
They will determine the future direction of Israel and maybe even--but hopefully NOT!--the fate of the world.

As if we could forget, Google doodle gave us a reminder this morning:  "Election Day--don't forget to vote!"
Over 30 lists are running for the Knesset; I wonder which little slip of paper the letters G and L in the doodle chose.

Someone at Google must have fun coming up with all their doodles. I know I would.

Listening to the results so far I sincerely hope it does not determine the fate of the world.

I LOVE that photo of you, Dina. I've heard that Netanyahu won, but by a very slim margin. I hope he will guide Israel toward peace and compromise.
