Sunday Scenes: August 30, 2015

private road

I do not ask to walk smooth paths nor bear an easy load. I pray for strength and fortitude to climb the rock strewn road. Give me such courage and I can scale the hardest peaks alone, And transform every stumbling block into a stepping stone. – Gale Brook Burket

  1. What a beautiful path you present in your photo. It doesn’t look too difficult to travel – I see no stumbling blocks or high peaks in your dirt road. I looked at the link on Selichot – my husband has been saying slichot for a month, as he goes to a Sephardi minyan. They start at 6 am and finish at about 8 am. One of my friends (a woman) said she loves selichot. If you read them in detail, you will see they are beautiful poetry.

    • Thank you, Leora. The path was not a difficult one, in reality, and as for me, I have crossed many difficult terrains, figuratively and literally.
      I like the idea of your husband’s Sephardi minyan saying Slichot for the entire month of Elul. I know Ashkenazim do not normally say Selichot for that long, although I know some who do.

      Selichot are lovely and poetic, indeed.
