The specialty of the sukkah as an all-embracing medium of connection with G-d is best understood in light of the significance of the “home” to the human being.
Our sages point out how deeply rooted is man’s desire for a home. The desire for a home is much more than the need for shelter and security—the satisfaction of these needs alone, without a plot of land to call one’s own, does not satisfy the craving for a home. The Talmud goes so far as to say that “One who does not possess a homestead is not a man.” The need for a home is intrinsic to the soul of man and a defining aspect of the human state.
Thus, a person’s identification with his home is not confined to the hours he spends within its walls. Also when he is at work, visiting with friends or taking a stroll in the park, it is as the owner of this particular home that he works, visits or strolls. Since his very humanity is incomplete without it, it is part and parcel of everything he does.
Don't remember where I saw this but I saved it and now I'm sharing it. Me. (I wanna say, "I'm no 'it'" but alas, these words doresh that I don't.)
I'll leave this place tonight just leave everything behind it's time to face my life we’ll trail a path across that gapand slap back to a crack in time is anyone on the other side? seek and you might find so high, so low I don't know where but we got to got to go there
so high, so low don't know where but we got to got to go there why not give up buck up, drop down why not lie down and never wake up give in give up and don't get up give in to the ground who gives up she is frozen in time behind the enemy line in the nighttime she stares down the highway which way is the right way? walkin through this world on a tightrope a memory door swings both ways in and out
in the outside, buckle up it's gonna be a bumpy ride now it's gonna be a bumpy ride now so high, so low I don't know where but we got to got to go there so high, so low I don't know where but we got to got to go there I am searching for the shade of the tree heard about it from a tune in the breeze they say it exists on the side of the road but which road? nobody was told (so low) all I know is I must find a road that leads where nobody goes (so low) I can roll down all the windows where the wind blows down those fears and foes (so high) so let go of the steering wheel let go, let go (so low)
all I know is I must find a road that leads where nobody goes let go of the steering wheel let go, let go so high, so low I don't know where but we got to got to go there so high so low I don't know where but we got to got to go there

Eh, wasn't such a great boxing class.
Partner was weak in holding her gloves up. Frustrated me even as I tried to keep in mind the patience the other guys have for me. I think I was gracious externally. I hope so. I'm glad I (kinda slyly?) just took to the bags at the end. Really like that new combo - jab cross, cross hook, hook cross body body hook cross. Yeaaah! Don't feel sore, stretched or worked out at all but if I recall that He runs the world to make things perfect for me and my mission, then I'm content.
Blessed be His name forever and ever.
Derech Agav, that first comma after "Eh" reminded me of the "," being the punctuation of the introvert tidbit/opinion I just came across.
Derech Chevron, you're in my heart. I wanna be on you super soon and safely on my way to חברון proper. Amen.

You don't usually (er ever) consult me when You're plan - making so pardon me for entering uncalled upon.
But, like Esther, I'm here to save my people.
Save one man, one Jewish man, and You'll be saving the world.
You want a home in this world, don't You? You do. Well, he's one of the top builders. Keep him here so long as we're in exile. And keep him here happy and healthy. Seriously, we know You can.

If not for His directive to rejoice on these days, I'd have let Sadness and/or Bitterness and/or Depression and/or Self Pity run my show two or more times thus far during this chag.
Tonight I (also literally hehe) kicked three letter donkey.
And it's not only His commandment to rejoice that forces me out of my potential and/or looming misery but it's ANY commandment of His.
He wants me and needs me and that's cause for joy, peace and celebration.
