Cycling In Multicolor

Something about this drawing at a local kosher restaurant really stood out. 

The weird cycle with the exaggerated extra big wheel in front.

The crazy looking skinny bodied person with long arms and legs and wild hair sitting on top.

The bright green, blue, orange, and yellow colors. 

It just made me laugh at the whole thing. 

It’s not exactly art, but it sort of is.  πŸ˜‰

Lots of Lenses

Wow, each of these are different eyeglass lenses. 

So many prescription strengths. 

Trial and error to figure out what is the right one. 

Hold it up to your eye or flip it into the machine. 

How’s things looking now?

A little stronger, no a little weaker. 

Wait, stronger.

No, weaker.

Ah this is nuts. 

How can I even see what the heck I am choosing. 

Seeing is believing.  πŸ˜‰

Incredible Horses and Wagon

Wow, thought this was an incredible horses and wagon.Β 

I love how the artist raised the path, so you could see the difficulty of traveling like this. 

And the sculpture is so intricate and detailed. 

Truly lifelike and makes you feel the times. 

In the Wild West, like in the “Old Country” people kept chugging along, even when life was difficult and often miserable. 

Not sure how they did it. πŸ˜‰

It’s Never About Luck

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “It’s Never About Luck.”

Today is Purim, when we celebrate the Jewish victory over the evil Haman and his conspiracy to annihilate the Jews in the Persian Empire. Haman drew a lottery to determine what he thought was a fortuitous day, the 13th of Adar, to murder the Jewish people and pursued this plot through a decree by King Achashverosh. But as we know, G-d made miracles through Queen Esther and her uncle Mordechai, and Haman and his ten sons ended hanging by the noose that he built for Mordechai. 

This has been my personal experience as well, as I can see both now and in 20/20 hindsight that there is a definite Divine method and not just a world of random chance and madness.

Teach Me To Fish

This photo is perfect with the quote: 

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. 

Please G-d, we should all learn to fish and pay it forward to others to teach them as well.  πŸ˜‰

Silly Pink Rabbit

You’ve got to really love rabbits to purchase this from the gallery and display it in your home.

Maybe it’s good luck for procreating, since rabbits are known to be specialists at it.

Also people like to carry a rabbit’s foot for good luck–where did that practice come from?

If the rabbit lost his foot and it’s in your pocket then it doesn’t seem like it was very good luck to the rabbit to begin with!

Who knows maybe it’s the Easter Bunny?

Honestly, aside from Bugs Bunny 

What’s up Doc?

And the cereal commercial about:

Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids!

I’m not sure who needs a six foot pink rabbit anyway. πŸ˜‰

Meatballs Piled High

Lots of little meatballs piled high. 

Probably goes well with some nice long spaghetti and saucy sauce. 

Mix it up and serve it steamy hot.

Around the table, everyone dig in. 

Oops, don’t spill the sauce on your shirt.

Keep some Tums around for any after effects. 

It’s hearty meatball and spaghetti night. πŸ˜‰

Happy Living Room

I like this painting by Deb Yager.

I call it, Happy Living Room!

Love the blues and pinks and green and other images (starfish, shells, and seahorse) of the big, beautiful ocean.

Definitely, ready to take off my shoes, lay down on that couch, and close my eyes. πŸ˜‰

The Power of Love

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “The Power of Love.”

When we act up and fight with each other, then in the end, we will really only end up hurting ourselves.

Tomorrow can be better than today and yesterday, if we learn to live in peace and brotherhood with each other, and understand that hurting another is really only hurting ourselves in the end. G-d’s holiness dwells among us only when we stop the silly bickering and infighting, and love each other, and Him, with all our heart and soul.
