  1. “There are a thousand stories in this city. This is one of them…”


  2. The great full moon hovered over the deeply thoughtful buildings.

    “See my moon”, said the plant, with a leafy gesture.

    “We brought it here just for you. What do you think we were doing, all those other nights while you were sleeping?”

  5. A Clear case of a photo hallucination caused by an overactive bladder. A sure cure is brought about by removal of the camera batteries before going to bed.

  7. As I ponder the 4AM moon, did I water the plants?

  9. Dear Dick,

    This photo is extremely unclear. Are the blinds keeping the light in or the darkness out? The photo should demonstrate which before asking for comments.

    Hoe can you ask for enlightening comments when you’ve left such ambiguity? Either answer could be wrong!

  10. Dear Dick,

    I was browsing and found this information that made me recall your window photo and Bill’s comments.

    The reason for the Hanukkah lights is not for the “lighting of the house within”, but rather for the “illumination of the house without,” so that passers-by should see it and be reminded of the holiday’s miracle. Accordingly lamps are set up at a prominent window or near the door leading to the street. It is customary amongst some Ashkenazim to have a separate menorah for each family member (customs vary), whereas most Sephardim light one for the whole household. Only when there was danger of anti-semitic persecution were lamps supposed to be hidden from public view, as was the case in Persia under the rule of the Zoroastrians, or in parts of Europe before and during World War II. However, most Hasidic groups, light lamps near an inside doorway, not necessarily in public view. According to this tradition, the lamps are placed on the opposite side from the mezuzah, so that when one passes through the door he is surrounded by the holiness of mitzvoth.


    Love, Barbara
