    I love chanting Torah. I try to do it often, and BK (before kids) I think I did it nearly every weekend. I did study it formally for a short while, and soon it became the kind of thing that I could just look at fast and do pretty darn well. Less so now. Maybe I am getting older,... read on

    Some days, it’s all hard. The thing you thought you had taken care of that time still does not work. The thing you wanted, try as you might, feels still so out of reach, and the things that ARE available to you feel not interesting at all.  Your brain starts then to listen in on... read on

    I was out gardening yesterday  Did I really just start a sentence like that? I promise, I have never actually gardened in my life, except at kibbutz camp maybe when I was 12. Something about weeds and watering And sunlight.

    As many of you know, I am (was?) a rigid Ashtanga Yoga practitioner. Never mind that I never got much past the beginning of second series (there are six)  or that I have yet to travel to Mysore. It consumed my life, or at least my mornings, for a long time.

    I watched as my Torah portion flew out into the street. The pages were in the basket of my bicycle as I rode to Milky’s on Friday afternoon to study in advance of chanting this Shabbat. Milky’s boasts frozen yogurt with lots of choices for their special food needs clientage like... read on
