Keeping An Eye on You

“A Conversation With G’D” – I am sorry the blog did not clarify what I meant by The Strong, Loving Voice. Perhaps just the change of Title would have been much more clear.

Keeping An Eye on You

“Is my joy and success in life because you have kept your eye on me?  And are you glowing with pride seeing me do loving, kindnesses?”

“I often wonder if I am doing well because you keep your eye on me, or if you keep your eye on me because I am trying to make this a better world.”

The Strong and Loving Voice replied:

“Both sides of your supposition may be correct – and there is a third part of the equation that indicates you have done well, and continue to be Blessed, Because You Keep Your Eye on Me!”

Tie-Dyed Cars

It was the 60’s; everyone tie-dyed shirts, and painted vans.  Me and my friends had no van – just old junk cars that our parents gave us, after they used ‘em up.

We laughed at our ‘junk-cars’ until we heard about Junk Car Racing.  “Wow! that sounds like fun!”  So we ‘tie-dyed’ our old heaps – painting every color – on every inch.

Went to the Junk Car Racing event, and smashed ‘em up good.  (Smashed other cars, too!)  After that, we were done with our cars.

Then I did what Dad always thought I would: Ran the car into the ground!

Photo Prompt 2015 June 19

The Ballroom – So Long Ago

They rented a ballroom in a hotel in New York.  I walked in with my family, and was overwhelmed by so many people and such fancy chandeliers!  The people were hugging and all were talking at the same time!  Some said how ‘cute’ I was – and I felt even shyer than ever.

I noticed other children.  Some running around the huge room; others playing quietly.  I was surprised to find we were all related!  I had a grand time – all but forgotten – until this chandelier photo prompt reminded me of the gathering of the Pachefsky Family Circle!

The Ocean Waves

This week’s Friday Fictioneers Photo prompt, and Rochelle’s story reminded me of a poem I wrote when I was 17:

Responsibility

Responsibility is like an ocean wave that beats the sand photoprompt june 5

Reminding man he’s needed still It steals him from his lonely land

Man knows the waves and what they bring, and where to run avoiding them

But currents guiding ocean waves outlast agility of men.

This Week's Photo Prompt
This Week’s Photo Prompt

The Litvak and Galitsyaner (Ashkenazi Jewish Descendants)

One of the differences between the Litvak and the Galitsyaner was Yiddish pronunciation.  The word for ‘Meat’ was Litvak “Fleish”, and Galitsyaner “Flaaysh”.

Mom told of Litvak and Galitsyaner wolves. The Litvak asked the Galitsyaner: “What’s in your mouth?” – The Galitsyaner responded “Flaaysh” – open-mouthed, the meat fell out – the Litvak snatched it.  The Galitsyaner asked the Litvak: “What’s in your mouth?” – He replied: “Fleish” – jaws firmly closed, retaining the meat.

In this photo, the Plesiosaur – a Litvak – still grips with his jaw tight, long after his own ‘Fleish’ has fallen away.
