I was very curious about a post from CoCreate, titled “Cyber-Seniors” Showcases the Creative Potential of the Over-65 Set. Here’s the punchline of the article: At first glance, the Cyber-Seniors documentary (which is currently touring Canada and the U.S.), seems like an amusing take on the generation gap. In fact, it highlights an overlooked creative … More which is the medium? which is the message?
Playing with children is always a great way to re-open your eyes. Or let’s say it this way; playing with my grandchildren is always a great way to re-open my eyes. We had the pleasure of watching our 19 month-old for the last 2 days while his parents got a little anniversary time to themselves. … More stuck
I thought I’d add the next two lines of Psalm 145. It’s been a while since I last tried finding photos that matched the tone of the psalm. With my last trip to New York, I think I found some fitting ones. This first photo is of the Brooklyn Museum, which represents Art, which represents creativity, which … More looking always to add the next line
We visited the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens yesterday with our son and family in from Australia, and our daughter and kids from NJ. I was surprised to see that it was called that and not Botanical. Apparently, the words are identical in meaning, but botanic is the older phrase. Newer gardens are more likely to be … More a new york state of botanic mind
Apparently, 3 sheets means drunk and 4 means unconscious. I thought of this phrase this morning as I was making beds for guests. I want to make sure that everything is shipshape, of course, especially because these are strangers and I don’t want them thinking poorly of me. (Yes, I sort of don’t care as … More 4 sets of sheets and the wind
When we were in Israel, we went to Mitzpe Netofa, a community in which many people had suggested we might like to live. It was nice, but not so sure about living. But we liked the sitting. We liked the benches. And what was written on them. The photo below has a quote from Rebbe … More this here bench above

This is any kind of loss, I think. It could be death, heartbreak, betrayal, failure that is not of your producing. Yesterday, I … More when you realize your loss is not unique
Apparently, Ellen DeGeneres is bringing this to the States. (See the second paragraph here for the mention.) I’d be happy to do my own version. Maybe. Okay, not filmed!
Among the hundreds of my old letters that my father gave me that my mother had saved were a few really ancient ones. I started trying to go through them today, but gave up after scanning a bunch. I can’t figure out whether it’s really worth the time to scan them all. I guess it’s … More can it be lost if you didn’t remember it?
It’s not an easy street to pronunciate, if you’re not familiar with it. It’s actually not easy to write in Hebrew, either, but I don’t know if it’s difficult in Russian, since I don’t speak the language. When I was a student after college, learning in Brovender’s, what we referred to as “yeshivah”, although now … More the street where i lived
