Was, Is, Always Will Be.
G-d = Good
"That's cool. Well, that's cool and that's not cool."
"Whatcha talking about? What's cool and not cool?"
"Well, it's cool that you stick to your religion but it's not cool that you lose business over it."
"Hey, if I believe in G-d enough to listen to His rules, then I definitely believe He's not gonna make me suffer cuz of it."
(chuckle) "You're right."
"You have to begin with the knowledge
that there is nothing perfect in this world.
Our job is not to hunt down perfection and live within it.
It is to take whatever broken pieces we have found
and sew them together to create beauty."
Oxygen for my soul.
Bose headphones and Alaska and loud music in my ears,
Stuffed Koby and a wooden desk and movies of good tears.
Words to write up any day, moment or mind-shift,
Smiles, jokes and inner rock for every mood to lift.
I'm blessed in my hunger, on my blankets and my all.
And I've just been reminded every leap comes from a fall.
If it was golus, we'd argue over time zone truths, secretly at best, openly and ferociously at worst.
But it won't be golus, so we'll all happily, peacefully and gracefully agree without anyone feeling rejected or compromised.
O how sweet Redemption will be. How very sweet indeed.
War and fights and struggle, I like. External, but that's rare to come without internal too. Comedy and history are nice but it's the drama of battle that lures me. I don't like violence or death or pain. I shudder and turn away and block it out. But soldiers and boxing champions are something else.
You'd think I'd welcome a break from the battlegrounds but nope. Is it cuz it's the only thing that resonates as truth? Is it cuz I get motivated and inspired? Is it cuz I feel comforted to recognize it's not just me? Is it 4:36am and I have to go to sleep?
That moment when your gangster boxing teacher asks you what was the most dramatic thing that happened in your elementary school where you work, and you answer, "when the students break their inner nature", and you get a priceless look of confusion as to which bone that is and what weapons were used to achieve that.
"I once told someone I'll fight until my body falls apart," he said tonight.
"It's happening," we said at the same time.
"Stop before you kill yourself," I said.
"I need the money," he said.
"You wanna be rich and dead," I half-asked, half-said.
"Yup," he said.
"And I'll leave all my money for ... the people I don't even have," he said.
"Oysh. Don't make me so sad for you," I said, and punched out the next combo.
