Taking an interest in what others are thinking and doing is often a much more powerful form of encouragement than praise. ~ Robert Martin (I don't know who he is, but I very much agree with his quote.)

"Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself."

Memo: In Color

Saying things are
not black and white
can become part of
being black and white
your patterned patter
prepared like paper

- Neil Fleischmann

Thank you G-d for life - for my father, for my family, for my friends, for my students, for my work community, and my home community, and the community of my childhood, and my community of Jews at large, and my world community, and community of creative thinkers and actors and poets, and thank you G-d for all the ands in my life, and the and and ands. Thank you G-d in advance for helping me get to sleep and for - please - giving me strength and giving me another day and puting the two together as only You can.
