For the love of creation,
When you share what is happening to you,
whine, say your truth. It’s a performance of the highest kind to see the glorious vessel we are as human beings. What is revealed is a human example beyond the one anyone has ever known. Ask for someone to listen to you

 

while they know

 

they are you.

 

They listen to the performance

 

you do of yourself

 

for their illumination.

    I went to a bar last week, a rare occurance. It was after a rehearsal for a play, and I sat on the rooftop of some hotel and ordered a drink. 

    This man sat next to me. 

    I remarked about peace, and how jewish prayer usually mentions peace. It occured to me that many people may not know that.  "OSEH SHALOM.." how high, central, and explicit of an ideal it is. 

    He said he really didn't know that.
