His Bicycle is now in the Hall, and digs into me, each time I walk past it. I do not mind.





Gratitude List 4/4/23

  1. Here is photo of A Reading at The Red Table. This photo really belongs to yesterdays gratitude list. For 'better late than never', Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  2. Pesach, or Passover, starts tomorrow. House cleaning and cooking loom before me. These activities have to be fitted in around my work. Although I make some effort, I do not consider that I really clean to the extent of deep holiness. For cupboards, and for patience: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  3. I escape to Lincoln Inns Fields with Flo and we sit in the sun. The day is bright, because it is lunch time many people are walking around, often with friends and with colleagues, doing laps. I enjoy the snatches of earnest conversation which I overhear. For conversation: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  4. A client arrives. Once again space arrives to be filled. Miraculously this happens, and the client is pleased. Phew! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  5. By zoom, I speak with my friend who lives in Italy. For friendship which endures: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  6. For Seder Night I want to make the sachertorte recipe which is included at the back of The Lost Schindler Cafe. Later in the evening I take the bus to Tottenham Court Road, to buy almonds and chocolate from Lidl, who have the best prices. For having the privilege of being able to bake: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  7. At dusk I notice that at least 10 people have pitched their tents, or laid out sleeping bags in the awnings under Heals. I am not sure that we are actually in 2023. For shelter: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  8. Zach arrives home from Exeter. He no longer has any lectures to attend, and his degree is nearing completion. Josh drove down and collected him. Its good to have him home: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  9. Space needs to be found for Zack. His Bicycle is now in the Hall, and digs into me, each time I walk past it. I do not mind. For stuff: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

  10. I know that the time of just us three, Josh Zach and myself, living under one roof nears completion. I feel joyous and sad at the same time. The Yiddish word for this feeling is V'Clempt. For Le Chaim! For Life: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
