"The line separating good 
& evil passes not 
through states,
not between classes, 
nor between political 
parties either -

 but right through 
every human heart."

We all need fresh starts. 
That's why the sun

“Fear kills Life and Light. 
Awe builds us up 
and makes Wise. Plug 
into something judged 
worthy by your own heart."


"I am determined to be 
cheerful and happy in 
whatever situation I may 
find myself. For I have learned
 that the greater part of 
our misery or unhappiness is 
determined not by our
 circumstance but 
by our disposition."

Happy  Passover

"Unleavened Bread. . . the emblem of 
the Israelites’ suffering in Egypt 
and the symbol of the haste—
that is, the joyous eagerness—
which marked their departure. 
When we eat the 
Unleavened Bread on the Festival 
we, in a sense, eat the bread of 
sorrow with our toiling, suffering 
ancestors, and for the 
moment share the sorrow itself."
                                 Morris Joseph, 
                                         "Passover," Judaism as Creed and Life

you have any right to

"The heron blames the water
 because he cannot swim."
                                      Danish Proverb

“When despair for the world 
grows in me, and I wake 
in the night at the least
 sound in fear of what my life
 and my children's lives may be --

" I go and lie down where 
the wood drake rests in 
his beauty on the water, and 
the great heron feeds. I come 
into the peace of wild things 
who do not tax their lives 
with forethought or grief. 
I come into the presence 
of still water. And I feel 
above me the day-blind stars 
waiting with their light. For 
a time I rest in 
the grace of the world, 
and am free.”
                          Wendell Berry
