Magical Blue Pendant

Thought this blue pendant was just magical!

Beautiful blue color and love the inlaid design over it. 

Middle eastern style and it’s a standout!

There is mystery, eloquence, and even some unapologetic sexiness to it.  😉

Don’t Forget To Brush

How’s that for a great reminder to brush your teeth.

Not so subtle though, right?

Man, what a pair of choppers!

I’m brushing. Believe me.  

Don’t have to show me twice!  😉

Artsy Bike

This is an artistic bike in Washington, D.C. 

Like a newspaper, it’s black and white and “read” or actually rode all over. 

How much time do you give a bike like this before it gets stolen on the streets downtown?

D.C. seems to be getting even worse than before, now with Coronavirus and the riots.  

Doesn’t feel safe, and it’s in definite need of an urban makeover from all the horrible poverty and homelessness.  😉

Sweet Little Bunny

Wow, what a sweet little bunny. 

Surprised s/he let me get so close without hopping away. 

The eyes seemed a little bugged out. 

Nothing to be afraid of little bunny. 

We’re not on the survival TV show Alone, so no one here is going to eat you. 

Run free and enjoy the garden little bunny. 

Life is good for you. 😉

Sunflowers For Shabbat Shalom

Love these beautiful sunflowers. 

Perfect for enhancing the Shabbat and holidays!

The sunflowers provide warmth and happiness for the honor of these special and spiritual days!

May Hashem in His abundant mercy grant us a full healing and peace to welcome the Shabbat and to celebrate this weekend a joyous Shmini Atzeret and Simchat Torah.

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach! 😉

The Vise of Migraines

 This guy has his head in the grips of a vise.

Yet it’s, perhaps, not as bad as your typical horrible migraine. 

Actually, the pressure of a vise-like feeling may actually provide some sort of sick relief.   

Migraine headaches can be so incredibly debilitating. 

This guy looks like he needs to close the lights and lay down before his head pops! 

Consider taking some medication as per your doctor, ice packs also helpful, close your eyes, and say a prayer.  😉

Sukkot: A Time of Divine Protection

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “Sukkot: A Time of Divine Protection.”

Sukkot is the Jewish Festival of Shelter and of Ingathering.  

In these challenging times of coronavirus and before this eventful election, more than usual, we need G-d’s blessings to shelter and protect us, and to bless both the United States of America and the State of Israel that they should be safe for all of us and that the “ingathering” be not only of the harvest, but of all the exiles from the four corners of the earth to G-d’s Promised Land for the final redemption.

Beautiful Japanese Pagoda

Japanese pagoda signifying the elements of earth, air/sky, fire and water.

Beautiful integration of stone into natural surroundings. 

Centered, self-reflection, mindfulness, enlightenment, peace. 

You can see this at Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden in Delray Beach, Florida.
