And, after work I got to ride for a couple of hours.
Purim started this evening. I rode out to Neve Shalom to be with my rabbi friend and some remarkable folk. Even the Holy One, blessed be, made an appearance. Yes, God came to the party and wanted to play hide and seek. Who were we to argue? Problem was when the Holy One, blessed be, hid there was no concealment. It appears when God hides, God hides everywhere and is impossible to overlook. I asked what was the point of the game then. The response? "So you might remember that in seeking you may find." Then God added, "The only time I can't be found is when you are cock sure you've found me. Human certainty is the one place I can hide. If you don't believe me, just ask Haman?" God was whispering. I'm not sure anyone else heard or not. I am sure we listened to a very holy tune, ate hamantaschen, made some silliness, and had a great time.
- 61F and overcast for the ride into work.
- 69F and still overcast for the ride out to Neve.
- 69F and I'm assuming still overcast, but it was dark, for the ride home.
