December 4

Shabbat is a rest day here. People go to services, they have lunch afterwards at homes of friends who are in walking distance. You come home, you take a nap. You don't work. You don't run to the grocery for the last thing that you forget ( it isn't open), you don't throw in that load of clothes. You rest. You don't watch TV, no iPad,no cell phone.. I don't know what other don'ts that you don't do, but these are the things that aren't done in this house. You rest. It's not a bad idea. You can think. You can read, I think. You can have discussions. It might be a good thing for everyone to take a day off at the same time. Rest For a whole day. What a concept.Then we could have a day of loving our neighbor, followed by respecting parents. Wait, am I making these things up or have I heard them before?

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
