Holy, heavenly versus mundane, earthly.

Hayom Yom...

In learning Torah the Yid feels like a pupil with his master;
in Davening - like a child with his father.

Warm, family versus cold, strangers.
Costume versus genuine.

Rabbi Akiva laughed because the Chachomim cried....

Had they not cried for the bais hamikdosh, had they been satisfied with the golus THEN he would not laugh, he would cry...but since he saw that they are not happy, they are yearning for the geulah... ah, then he was able to laugh, the good times will come...

Hayom Yom

In the early period of his leadership the Alter Rebbe taught:

"The footsteps of man are directed by G-d."

When a Jew comes to a particular place it is for an (inner
Divine) intent and purpose - to perform a mitzva, whether
a Mitzva between man and G-d or a Mitzva between man and his

A Jew is G-d's messenger.

Wherever a Shaliach may be, he represents the power
of the Mshalei'ach, the one who sent him.

Birthday piece.

Pass the Cake please.

When 'metal meets metal' it makes an awful sound.

My car is metal.

not so stam...

Samuel David calls and I'm all animated, happy to talk to him, asking him questions...
(He answers something like this, too bad I don't remember exact words)
"I wasn't trying to call you I was trying to call Aharon".

O-kayyyyy :)


A) I still don't wanna go.

B) I asked the big black guy, who was totally bald, (like Paul bald, shiny bald, but now Paul has hair, curly) who was standing in front of the barber shop -
"Did you just get a haircut?"
"No, I'm the barber"

Perhaps should've reminded him to put sunscreen on his head, to prevent burning it...

C) What a pleasure - the neighbours are gone!! Whoo hoo.

D) Splashing "chunky half frozen mixed smoothie chocolate whatever" in your face once is, okay. But twice! That was funny.

E) "How are you?" asks Dr. I.
"I'm fine, till I get here".
"And then you're fine after you leave, right? It's just the time here, huh?"
He knows me.

F) Kandice is camera/phone happy. She keeps sending me pictures. About seventy-nine a day.

G) I still don't wanna go, but I will go. Bezrat Hashem.
I asked the Rebbe to bentch me.

Worshiping G-d - Prayer

As subjects of our King, we express our dedication and loyalty
by offering our praise and making our requests through prayer.

Been thinking about this...epes don't really get it...

Jean de la...
Life is tragedy for those who feel, and comedy for those who think.

So does that mean that -
For those who think and feel, life is meshugah - a comic tragedy?
isaac bashevis singer

I don't know why I wrote that.

She beats to her own drum.

You do what you must, and G-d will do what He must.

It is upon each and everyone of us to know, d'haynu, think deeply about it, that he - he is the leader the head, from him and through him are the hashpo'os in gashmius and ruchnius and through connecting to him - are we connected to the source and the source of sources which is higher than high....

"When a man dies in a tent" (Bamidbor) Hayom Yom....

Mesiras Nefesh for a Talmid Chochom... he gives his very life to be in the "tent of Torah,"- renouncing (putting to death) all wordly pleasures.
The Shechina is in Golus with us.

When we suffer so does He.

Chatan dinan

Hu ha'choson.
Hu ha'shadchan.

Rov was not happy with the 'shpitzel', and didnot allow him to keep the money Or to tell them the truth - for sholom bayis reasons.
"Is it all about memories?".

I feel so alone -

Take me on your wing.
Teach me how to "sing".
Thanks for coming out of your hiding place.
But I need your embrace.
Show me your face.


You only need the main thing -
to help another wholeheartedly, with sensitivity, to take pleasure in doing a kindness to another.
