"Paths" by emily stern

My 14 year old friend would wake up every morning and do a hand washing ritual. She was so quickly termed with Obsessive Compulsive Behavior.

She was already in the “system” so to speak having been hospitalized with anorexia, working with it, since we were 10.

i remember the image of her chapped hands. During the drought this year in Israel, I remembered this. Our holy love for hand washing. and the two state instituted fast days to pray for rain.

i am curious as to what the world looks like without sound, story, maybe it is something other than limiting people into what we already know. Be not afraid to think about what is being enacted in your life.

enacted is Tikkun, is it not?
