Rothko

Chanukah Parenting Highlight

When my daughter Chana was nine, I did some homeschooling with her. She wrote a poem about Chanukah and made beautiful cards by pasting her poem and a Rothko image back to back. That afternoon meant a lot to me. It’s still one my parenting highlights. Here’s her poem Chanuka Oil, Greasy gold. Eight lights…

The Kabbalah of Dream Analyisis

On Gratitude & Setting Stronger Boundaries

I’ve been learning this lesson for what feels to be about a year but has probably been going on for longer. Before the summer it became engrained much more deeply. But it didn’t strike home. I guess we have to be ready for messages and insights. Nothing BIG happened today- subtle stuff – but the…
