Shalom


Life gets crazy busy during the holidays, halfway through Hanukkah with Christmas looming in an endless to do list. The newspaper reads like a dystopian YA novel. What can we do? Take a moment to enjoy life right now: walk by the sea before sunset, drink wine with a loved one or read a good book by the fire. Remember to breathe. Shalom means peace in Hebrew.


Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Hanukkah to you as well Sarah. I'm also by the sea right now, taking in the peace of the ocean - much appreciated during times such as these.

The newspapers really do read like dystopias, and it's not getting any better. These are such peaceful images; thank you.

Shalom. I love this. Thank you. Shalom means peace, but also hello & goodbye, right? I love the simpleness and complexity of it...how it is big enough to contain all those meanings.

All, a belated thank you!

Rachel, Shalom and welcome to my blog! I'm looking forward to checking out your blog too. Thanks for adding that reminder that Shalom is used to say hello and goodbye since others might not be aware of that. Like you, I was marvelling at the beauty and scope of this greeting and the message it sends to the world.
