I had been sitting in the living room for an hour under the sound of Israeli planes and bombs when I asked:

"So this is it? This is what people do during the war? They just sit home and wait to be bombed?"

And it happened to be so. If your neighborhood or your house is not being bombed, you stay in, or under it when possible, and wait. Wait for the bombing to stop. You can also shout, cook, listen to the radio, or make love, wash the floor, bite your nails, eat, get worried or be horrified.

Or draw.
