Lakes, Rivers, Oceans, Ponds, Oh MY!

I love to be near the ocean, a lake, a river or a pond. I enjoy the natural beauty that illuminates before me, and I find myself in awe when thinking about what is before my eyes.

One day while walking the perimeter of a lake, I saw a man in a kayak. It got me wondering, and when I went home, I did some research. Here is a post of mine (reflective of that research) from June 23, 2014, regarding Jews and Kayaking.

The next time you are wandering near a lake, stream, river, the ocean or a pond, take a moment to reflect on the loveliness before you.

It is Sunday, once again, and time for Sunday Scenes. Sunday Scenes does not necessarily imply there will be a photograph, but there usually is. It is just my way of titling my blog post on a given Sunday.

First off, why not go and browse the links at Havel Havelim, the Jewish Blogger’s Carnival.

Did you know that Shel Silverstein’s book, The Giving Tree has turned fifty years old? You will be able to read it digitally, through HarperCollins Publishing.

To The Point: Posters by Dan Reisinger, is an exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center, through April 20, 2014.

I finished reading Goliath’s Head, by Alan Fleishman. It was quite compelling.

Let us remember Sid Caesar, and his amazing contributions to comedy and TV. z”l

One man’s candle is light for many – Talmud on Shabbat

One generation goes and another generation comes; but the Earth remains forever.
(Kohelet 1:4)

As a Jew I am aware of how important the existence of Israel is for the survival of us all. And because I am proud of being Jewish, I am worried by the growing anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in the world.
-Steven Spielberg

All the world is a very narrow bridge, and the most important thing is not to fear at all.” “If you won’t be better tomorrow than you were today, then what do you need tomorrow for?
-Rabbi Nachman of Breslov

Shabbat Shalom!
