Blessed to the power of Blessed

My blessings overflow
Ripe juicy fruits of blessings
Everywhere I go

The curtain in my room to give me privacy
The clean shower
The shelf, drawer and hanging space
Heating and air-conditioning
Free use of car
Abundance of food
(plus allowed to cook my own)
(that's so appreciated, the parentheses should be removed)
Rack for my shoes
Washing machine and dryer, whenever I want
Free wifi
The sounds of family talking, moving, laughing
Warm blankets
Safe place (in a cookie-meet-cookie-zapping-in-all-direction way)
Loads of seforim (n books)
Quiet at night
Chassidishkeit in the walls

My blessings overflow
Ripe juicy fruits of blessings
Everywhere I go
Here, at home.

הודו לה' כי טוב כי לעולם חסדו

Make Up Your Own Life
Tammuz 16, 5775 · July 3, 2015

If everything were spelled out —exactly what you are supposed to do, when, how, with whom and for how long—what room would be left for you to live your own life?
This is why the details of your mission in this world are withheld from you:
Out of G‑d’s great benevolence, so that this little creature can decide on its own and partner with G‑d in its own life.

rocks
i wanted to start with a soft small furry light-brown puppy snuggling
but i started it with rocks
and darkness
even digital darkness
hate the small hopes
for hoping
but it gives life
i suppose
i suppose it gives life
past the moment
and goodness for others
is life too
life
death
hope
bliss
despair
resolve
compose yourself, for a laugh
laughs clear most
