The recollection of my first Passover in Iran is both soothing and painful. Like sweet charoset. Like bitter marror. Like the memory that fades with four cups of wine, and refluxes in the morning with indigestion. Delving back into our youth is never easy. As children we are sponges that soak up and exaggerate the stories of those around us. At the right moment, a smile can propel our progress and a harsh comment can scar us permanently. Courage is needed to walk backward on the narrow bridge that threatens a collapse onto mine fields of memory. Going back without a professionally guided tour, risks awakening our buried demons.
