Notes to myself

Abra Cadabra is Aramaic for 'I create by what I say'.

We are all pickles in the brine of our thoughts.  What kind of pickle do you want to be?

It is very important that, in the center of ecstasy, there is a core of sobriety.

Perhaps Aaron's sons were not killed because the strange fire was bad; maybe they were ecstatically offering all of themselves.  Maybe that's why G-d told people not to grieve.

Imagination is the ground for prophecy.

The sacrificial system of worship was the technology of prayer during the era of the temples.


  1. this is a beautiful interpretation of that Torah moment. I found your blog through Carolynn's so happy I did!

  2. I'm so glad you posted on my blog, it gave me the chance to visit yours! I read the first line and am instantly excited about reading more of your blog/s!

    I did not know about the origin of Abra Cadabra - delightful! Thanks for enlightening me :o) The word "delightful" seems to have attached itself to my perception of you :o) Am really looking forward to reading more of your writing!

    One question .. did the o roll away? How come you don't just write "God"?
