Good Erev Shabbos
I like this 8 year old post, which includes a DT on Nassa (2 actually) memories of youth and thoughts about this time of year...
Things have been intense lately. And when I say lately, I mean the last year.
I think of things as i remember them, random things sometimes from today's morning sometimes from years ago.
I just thought of Tropicana blocks. A friend of mine, about 20 years ago, took the old Tropicana cartons cut the tops off, inserted one in the other and wallah- he had building blocks. He made many of them and brought them out when he had families with little ones visiting for Shabbos meals. I saved cartons, i made the toy blocks. Lots of them. I invited. i waited...
A dear friend of mine you used to be a used car salesman told me today that many people in many aspects of life use the oldest used car trick in the book. It's called stringing along. You don't give a straight answer.
I am kind of proud of this blog. it also confounds me. It's been a long time. I wonder why i write here. I know of less than a handful of people who read it regularly. And yet.
I used to especially love posting here before Shabbos. It's been a long time since I took that time. I'm glad I'm taking it now.
And yet. Times is leaking away and all i have can say is that i wish everyone a wondeful Shabbos, full of rest and peache and G-d given blessings o strength,
It's a new month today, Sivan. This is a month of G-d giving us the Torah. may we be blessed to take the Torah into our life, more-so and more-so.
