There are times when the stars align just SO...

when the moon is full...
and the numerological aspects create scintillating equations of a seemingly prophetic nature....
when "signs" and "symbols" appear with emphatic frequency.....

There are moments when the air is THICK and RICH and DENSE with mysticism....
when the moisture in the atmosphere essentially DRIPS "whimsy"....

One only need be "aware"....
with eyes and heart FULLY open to the INFINITE POSSIBILITIES of the universe.....
of God....

For...
In the end of the day.....
TIMING is EVERYTHING.....
Not ONLY with regard to one's "ability" to RECOGNIZE the opportunity....
But....
Certainly...
More so....
to SEIZE that VERY MOMENT and REVEL in its "potential" splendor...

These are the things which set the dreamers apart from the DREAM 'ACTUALIZERS'...

Awaken from the life-long bed of compromise....
Toss the belief that "MEDIOCRITY is ENOUGH" directly OUT the proverbial window...
Go for the GOLD!!
This minute !!
You may feel a tad disconcerted...uncomfortable....
(away from the routine safety net)...
But trust this Blog Mistress....

JUST REACH ......
You'll thank me later....

The Consumate, Existential Dilemma...


Why things happem....
Why obstacles appear...
Why we turn a corner and the ENTIRE scenario has shifted to an extreme...
(somehow having been camouflaged or even hidden to us during its inception...)
These are the mysteries of life....
The perpetual questions...
And IN these pivotal moments..
These Essentially LIFE-ALTERING moments....
HOW do we react ?
How did we, in fact, INFLUENCE the occurrence in question ?
Were we even factored in at the onset ?
WHO did the planning ?
WAS it planned ?
Happenstance ?

The perpetual pursuit of TRUTH...
How to UNEARTH its precipitating factors...

Will this girl find the answers beneath the layers of paint ??
Remains to be seen...

Ebbs, Flows, Old Friends......


It's really quite remarkable and somewhat dumbfounding to reflect back upon a day's events, emotions, experiences....ONE day....
and consider and even enumerate ALL the ebbs and flows and ins and outs and ups and downs that took place in this relatively miniscule amount time...
For example, in just 24 hours, we experienced ecstasy, fear, bewilderment, confusion, flirtation, nostalgia, sadness, feelings of elation, satisfaction, joy, laughter, tears,
and so on....
The veritable GAMIT of highs and lows...ALL in the timespan of a relative heartbeat...
We ran into old friends....new friends....
Shopped, saw movies, cooked, went out to dinner....
It is NO WONDER that we humans are actually exhausted at the end of each day...
And then, the alarm goes off in the morning.......
and guess what ??
We do it ALL again...
like ants marching up and down the corridors of a tree trunk....
one by one...
an assembly line of ants...

To what end, I ask ?
Where's the pot of gold ?
Where's the RAINBOW, for that matter ???

The French say that...


"Once the Champaign glass has been broken,
no matter how much one TRIES to glue it back together,,,
it can never actually be WHOLE again..."
I surmise this to mean that there will always be seepage dripping from the
'once-cracked' edges...
A metaphor with considerable weight actually...
A CLEAR visual...
And until just a few days ago, I believed this premise to be absolutely correct...
(with no exceptions)...
Today, however, I am singing a song of a different tune....
Life happens...
People break and mend
and rupture and heal
over and over again in a lifetime...
(in however many lifetimes they experience!)

The pivotal position from which to move on from the debacle...
the EXACT place to be focused and perched at the moment of BREAKAGE...
can ONLY be found and utilized through the TIME and WAY and EFFICACY of the "HEALING"....
NOT EVER "within" THE RUPTURE....
But rather, THROUGH the rupture...

The simple truth....
is that HEALING and ASCENDING must ALWAYS, but ALWAYS,
be at the forefront of one's consciousness in order to
EXACT a TRUE and TRANSCENDANT form of existence....

Is this making sense ?

A Godly Sory.......


"A Godly Story..."

So.....

I had a MAJOR issue that needed resolving quickly and efficiently...(NOTHING to do with health!)....
But...(VERY TIME SENSITIVE)..and VERY CRITICAL...
And I literally lost sleep for weeks over how to handle it and who to see about it....I was completely lost....
And I prayed and prayed to God for guidance on this...
And one night I found myself asking my brother (Mike) in heaven if he could PLEASE this ONE TIME help his little sister out with this....

And out of the blue I woke up the next day and asked one of my friends here on FACEBOOK ....
if he knew anybody who dealt with these kinds of matters specifically...
Now if you know me at all, you know that I am well acquainted with MANY,
MANY people....politicians, etc.
But for some reason, I chose THIS particular man to ask....I trusted him with it...
And he said, (I'm quoting), " I know a VERY SPECIAL man who does this, but it's a very busy time for him... Call him anyway"
I called....The man was SO kind and sweet on the phone and said ,
"Yes, come over to my office tomorrow...Bring all the paperwork, etc...Let me see if I can help you" (He didn't even ask for my last name)
I went there the next day with a TON of papers in tow, so heavy was this bag of papers, that I could barely lift it...
And as we sat in his office, he looked at my Maiden name (Gotesman)...
and said ,
"Oh my God....You're #MIKEGOTESMAN's SISTER !!!!!!!!!!!"
"I was BEST BEST BEST friends with Mike for YEARS !!! Like BROTHERS!!! We met in college and were inseparable !!!
YOU ARE FAMILY !!!!!"
We were both SO stunned at the "sheer divinity" of the moment, that we were speechless and wept silently for a long time and just looked at eachother....
Needless to say, the man took this veritable pile of bricks OFF of my shoulders completely and absolutely....
That's my story....
Have a BEAUTIFUL and MEANINGFUL Shabbos....
And know that God is right there next to you.....

On Mothers.......

The day is COLD,,,,FREEZING actually....
You are a seven year old girl.....
just leaving school.....walking out into the blustery cold....
And there's your MOM..
She's parked as CLOSE to the front door of school as possible,
so that your exposure to the frigid air is a non-event...
She gets out of the car, with a BIG, RED, PLAID Blanket......
Wraps it around and around your little body...
encasing you like a MUMMY...hahaha
And she picks you up in her loving arms and carries you,,,
all swaddled up in the blanket to the car...(only a few feet away)...
And she has come laden with treats for the 12 minute ride home....
for she surely does not want her "little angel" to STARVE...
So there are HOT MUFFINS and HOT CHOCOLATE....
And you are as COZY as the COZIEST BUG in a RUG...
And when you get home, the house smells of freshly baked cookies and muffins...
and of CHERRY WOOD that burns brightly in the fireplace.....
And there is music playing....
It sounds like ANGEL HARPS....
EVERYTHING IS PERFECT.......

OK...
THAT's the FANTASY.......

HERE is the REALITY....

School is over...
Your mom is waiting...
BUT...
There is NO RED BLANKET...
There are NO MUFFINS...
She doesn't carry you because SHE WOULD BREAK HER BACK !!!
You are NOT so small !!!
And while there ARE, in fact, TREATS......(ehhh)
They are definitively NOT FRESH MUFFINS...
And there is NO HOT CHOCOLATE either....

There is....
Ya ready ?

A half opened jar of GEFILTE FISH ....
all encased in that GELATINOUS, CLEAR, Yellowish Shit...
(If you're a Jew reading this, you know EXACTLY which CLEAR SHIT I'm talking about !!)
Although, truth be told,
THERE IS NO REAL REASON for it...
I have often imagined that the "Gel Stuff" is what might be served
if one were to end up in HELL.....
Nuf said...

And your Mom has forgotten the USUAL plastic fork...
the one that continuously gets WASHED and used again and again !
You KNOW.....the DISPOSABLE FORK....
So....
MOM forgot it!!
Hence, you are relegated to eating the freakin' fish with your HANDS !!!
So your hands smell like fish for WEEKS afterwards...
And there's orange juice too..........EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
GEFILTE FISH and ORANGE JUICE......
And when you get home, SHOCKKKKKKKKER....
there are NO CHERUBS PLAYING HARPS !!!
There is an episode of DARK SHADOWS playing in the living room.....
AND YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND WITH FEAR.......
For Dark Shadows is SO SCARY that you hide under your covers ALL NIGHT after watching it...
waiting to be EATEN ALIVE...

But guess what...
Your MOM loves you JUST THE SAME in BOTH scenarios....

Happy Mother's Day !!.....

And so ends another holiday season.....

Passover always feels to me like the ultimate "Spring Cleaning"...
Not only do we scrub and empty and essentially FENG SHUI EVERYTHING in our homes and in our LIVES....
But we also go through a pretty extensive and specific "Body Cleansing"...
We rid ourselves of Wheat and Corn for starters....
2 of the MOST POTENT ALLERGENS known to man....
Accident ?
Or ...
Did God know EXACTLY what He was doing when He designed this "Curious" holiday ?
For SURELY....
Passover was not "man-made"...
Right ??
And it follows, in a rather perfunctory way .....
that with such an all-encompassing, "CLEANING OUT",,,,,
a catharsis of the EMOTIONAL BODY would organically occur as well..

So...
What does this SUPREME CLEANING OUT mean ?
What does it look like ?

Just thinking aloud....

More or Less or More or Less......

And So...
I ask you...(as well as myself)...
(ad nauseam)
Which is better ?
'More'.....?
or
'Less'.....?

Is the minimalistic approach
the "Correct" way ?
the "ELEGANT" way ?
Is being UNDERSTATED the formulation for WINNING and THRIVING ?

Or...

Did some "HACK" who couldn't rub 2 nickels together
just come up with that line of bull ?
ONLY to rationalize and fantasize that his DIRE CIRCUMSTANCES were a
CONSCIOUS CHOICE....
or perhaps to SAVE FACE ?
in order to cover the walls and interiors of his humble abode....
with "SMOKE & MIRRORS ?

How 'bout we just take a BIG, OSTENTAIOUS BITE out of the "BOUNTY" apple ?
What would happen if we simply had MORE than enough of EVERYTHING ?
There are SO many GREAT, ALTRUISTIC, GODLY things to DO and BE
with "Plenty" by our side...

So....
Which is "RIGHT" way to ?
