beer zen

We sit on a wooden bench,
Scars decorate its brown surface.
A hot summer's day,
The air is humid, thick with thoughts.
Cold glass enters,
Filled with my favorite.
As I drink the air is lighter,
There is no beer.
Just me.

"And Moses lifted up his hand, and smote the rock with his rod twice: and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their cattle."
Numbers 20:11.

"וַיָּ֨רֶם מֹשֶׁ֜ה אֶת־יָדֹ֗ו וַיַּ֧ךְ אֶת־הַסֶּ֛לַע בְּמַטֵּ֖הוּ פַּעֲמָ֑יִם וַיֵּצְאוּ֙ מַ֣יִם רַבִּ֔ים"
במדבר כ, יא'

So many decisions in the past month.
So many hard ones,
the most difficult ones I have ever made.
And the price paid was and still is very very high.

I never know if I made the right choice.
How could anyone?
What I feel and what I think battling endlessly in my head.
Never resting.
Always moving. Shifting. Changing.

Decisions come and go - and each time I'm still unsure,
Have I made the right choice? Is it good for me? Will it do good in the future?

Must be the player now, take responsibility for my actions and face the consequences.

all is happening

And I feel stationary.

Might be the holiday (Passover tonight),
Or just the need for security.

towers and flowers

You go blowing flowers in the wind, I'll go photographing towers.
