Make The Oy Vey Go Away

Flower.jpeg

What a wonderful way to make the oy veys go away…


This amazing beautiful flower.


Made by G-d Almighty.


See the perfection of the geometry and the shape that springs forth from mother earth.


Open your eyes to the magnificence and brightness of the colors. 


Feel in your mind’s eye the soft texture of the petals and droplets. 


Breath in the smell of freshness and new air into your expanding lungs. 


Yes, whatever ails you…


Make this for yourself a renewal of spirit and of flesh. 😉

Water Cross

This was so fun in the pool.


The water was on and it was almost like a really high-speed jet jacuzzi. 


The cool water was rushing at me and splashing in my face and it was a nice moment of relaxation and feeling of life. 


For those who have been to the mikvah, it felt refreshing and like a renewal of spirit. 


Just in jest…when I look at this, I can’t help noticing that it almost looks like Jesus on the cross. 


Except, thank G-d no nails, torture, or Roman Legion involved in this. 😉

Golden Retriever Swims Like A Fish

Out on the kayak today with Rebecca in Maryland. 



This beautiful golden retriever named Rudder was playing on the bank and in the water. 



He was swimming and chasing a toy that the friendly owners were throwing way out into the pond. 



On this hot sunny day, this dog was having a blast, and the people seemed to enjoy talking with us about him. 



Overall this was a welcome break from the Dog Days of Summer. 😉

Iced Pool BUT Hot Tub

Hot Tub
So I learned this vacation that some people really seem to enjoy temperature extremes.



These folks on the left are in the outdoor steaming hot tub.



However, see the pool next to them on the right–it’s nearly completely frozen over (and it would be except for a fireplace at the other end of the pool deck)!



The temperature outside a frosty 19 degrees fahrenheit.



Yes, for those who know me…I keep the air conditioner on in the Winter (true).



But even I didn’t bare it all in Santa Fe in December–at least not yet! 😉
