Postcards from Here: silhouettes and shadows

(more field notes from the world)

I love the layers that Paul Simon has brought to his music over the years

But equally, I love the perfect simplicity of his early song, Bleecker Street…

“I saw a shadow touch a shadow’s hand…”

And so….silhouettes touching silhouettes

And a little shadow magic, too

And a link to the simple, sad and beautiful Bleecker Street

    Hi Lorne,I also looked at a couple of previous posts and found the Earth walking photos breathtaking.  Thanks

    I’ve used the following quote or something similar for the Darchei Noam alternative minyan, M’chadesh, which unfortunately now only meets a couple of times a year.

    “The great miracle is not to walk on the air or to walk on water or fire, but to be able to walk on the Earth.”– Rinzai, ninth-century Zen master.” Thank you also for the Heschel quote, I’ll use it for our next Tu B’shvat  haggadah. “Just as we are commanded to love man, we are also called upon to be sensitive to the grandeur of God’s creation.” Shabbat Shalom, Gloria

    • Hi, Gloria.

      Thank you so much for the kind words. Needless to say, it means a lot to me to know that what I’m posting out here lands meaningfully with others. And it’s a real pleasure to know that some of it is showing up at the minyan.

      My best,

      Lorne
