"Um -- "
"Of course firstly cute."
"First he has to be a cute."
"Yes, you are cute so he has to be a cute."
That was awesome. And a relief not to be a crybaby. (I think.)

How can you deny the Holocaust and then accuse us of acting just as the Nazis, may their names be obliterated forever?
Can't have your hamantash and eat it too, ya know.
Then again, if their claim is that the story we tell of the Holocaust is a gross exaggeration of the reality, then their accusations that we're acting like the perpetrators is not as severe as we/they think it is. Absolutely horrifyingly blatantly untrue and terrible etc to even consider comparing but interesting observation of their double play.

I buy little balls and dolls and doctor sets so I can be prepared when I meet a child in need.
In Israel, where money goes for food and rent. Eh.
מודה אני לפניך, מלך חי וקיים, שהחזרת בי נשמתי בחמלה.
Thank You for Your love and for Your faith. Thank You for my life.

The will, the scorching burn of desire
The acceptance, the calming cool of reason
I want but I know I have
I want THAT but I have been given THIS
I'm not left with nothing
I'm left with something else
Give me so I can give
Bless me so I can bless
Enrich me so I can enrich
Nourish me so I can nourish
I am given, blessed, enriched, nourished
Ask, don't ask
Don't ask, ask
Souls to be born
Worlds to be redeemed
The known has become unknown
And my norm is not the norm
But it is my norm
Can a half a soul know You?
Can a half a soul create whole souls?
In THIS world?
(Because that's where I am)
Complete me so I can complete Your world
So I can have שבת and תורה and חינוך and כשר
So I can GIVE שבת and תורה and חינוך and כשר
I don't want to build Your world alone
I can build it so much stronger and bolder and higher and deeper ...

2) the minyan was in a gas station near our idle bus
3) I woke up just on time for morning
4) lerner messaged me and knew rafi
5) chani told me how calm she is
6) none of my stuff broke in transit
7) I had two showers today
8 ) one of the showers was hot
More later bez"h
