Not thinking coherantly yet.

No time to post 'till after December 19, so you get the song that most closely describes my thoughts.

Time it was and what a time it was
It was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences
Long ago, it must be
I have a photograph
Treasure your memories
They're all that's left of you.

-Simon and Garfunkel

Please daven for a refuah shelama for Shayndl Rachel bas Sima Leah.

That's a beautiful song. Good luck with your work!

Davening for someone who yu don't know, and have no feelings for, is useless. Teffilah has the effect of your conscious appeal, so we need some kind of detain so that we can feel compassion, which will make our teffilos meaningful.

Shmuel - it depends on your outlook. This is obviously a frum girl who needs a serious refuah Sheleima. A litle compasion in your davening (and generally) will go a long way.

TRW - good luck for the end of term. looking forward to reading something then.

TRW said...

Thanks, Tina ;)

Shmuel: She's a very good friend of mine-the problem with giving more details is that nobody really knows what's wrong with her. She was in the hospital a couple of years ago, and she just recently went back in. The short story is that she's a young, single 20-something girl, whose stomach stopped functioning.

Karl: Thanks.

Frum Single: Can I ask what the connection is? Is this a plug for your blog? I'm confused...

TRW said...

I actually disagree with you in a number of ways...and as this has nothing to do with the discussion at hand, (and since you cross-posted this on your own blog) I think you're getting deleted. Sorry.
