Yay Bean!

Yay Bean!



Welcome back, Bean!

Welcome back, Bean!

2007-05-10T12:00:00.000-05:00

Between the laughs, your writing has always been straight from the kishkes. I've always appreciated your candor. This blog does honor to your father's memory.

Speaking as one of the "heretics and sceptics" whom you've met in the blogosphere, for me "the exposure to so many diverse points of view and so many skeptical posts" has had, if anything a positive effect--it's shown me a diversity of opinions and practices that I didn't know existed within the Orthodox community. I think it's partly as a consequence of my encounter with Shomrei Mitzvot of various perspectives that I've been partly inspired, and, yes, partly, um, "encouraged" :) to become more observant. I, too, feel a certain accountability as a blogger. Seriously, if I'm that uncomfortable with the idea that women are except from positive time-bound mitzvot/commandments, then what excuse could I possibly give to my readers for continuing *not* to davven/pray three times a day? So much for sleeping late on Sundays. (Sigh.) But I do feel better, albeit sleepier, now that I'm trying to davven three times daily, because my practice is now more in keeping with my principles. Blogging has forced me to confront my own laziness. :)

Should you happen to be around Main St. (or anywhere else reachable by public transit), the Punster and I could probably arrange to meet up with you and any other volunteers (Ezzie, RaggedyMom, etc.).

May his neshama have an aliya.

I enjoy your posts and also enjoy the community of bloggers. You do bring an honest realness to your posts, which is appreciated.

I'm sure you father would be honored with the respect you pay him PT.

Its moving to see some one who 'is ' only human, sway from a path and then choose on his on accord to come back.

Not only do I love your blog, but your candid writing about your feelings re; your father, your relationship with him, and your mourning has been so helpful to me in examining where I am in my own journey. Thank you for sharing yours, and for cracking me up along the way. May healing come to you and yours, and may his neshama have an aliya.

Very beautifully said. I hope the yarzeit and your upcoming visit to the kever is a nechamah for you.

Bean: It is not hard to sign up for a new blogger account. Quit yer whining. Who told you to delete the other one?

2007-05-09T00:50:00.000-05:00

PS: Speaking of the virtues of blogging, does anyone ever take down defunct blogs? I understand the temptation to sign up to contribute to a dozen of them when we're invited, because each one sounds like a nifty idea, but then of course despite our best intentions we discover we actually have productive things to do with our lives and before we know it, your beutiful idea hasn't been updated in four months.

PS: Ditto what everyone else said about your dad's soul ascending.

Yasher koach on a fantastic post. It's a credit to both you and your parents.

May your father's neshama have an aliyah.

and of course, you know the song, right? You can't always get what you want. . .but if you try sometime. . .

It's a long year is my understanding. Beautiful post.

Beautifully written. You speak for many. May the neshama have an aliyah and may you have a full measure of nechama.

your blogging of your journey through aveilut has been inspirational for me in my similar situation, although my memories aren't nearly as clear and my posts aren't nearly as deep.

2007-05-08T19:00:00.000-05:00

PT, you certainly bring the human touch to your words. We see a spectrum of emotions when we read your honesty, and I believe that's the sign of a very good writer -- and a true mensch.

May your father's neshama have an aliyah.

Your posts about your experiences in the last year of mourning have been very inspiration and touching.

The neshama should have an aliyah. Thanks for continuing to put it all into words so well.

Let me know if there's anything I can arrange as a local liason :)

Strong work, boss.

You're right. You are accountable to us. You know darned well that I would kick your @$$ if you ever missed minyan.

2007-05-08T14:47:00.001-05:00

Wow - and here you have an inspiring post that can hopefully have an effect on others. It is a rare person, I think, who can recognize his shortcomings. Rarer still, who can act upon them. Even more, um, rarer, who can discuss it all openly as you have. A true yasher koach to you - your father would be proud. May his neshama have an aliyah.

That was an amazing pots. Yehi zichro baruch.

If you get near Main St., feel free to give me a ring. (Right around the corner from RaggedyMom!)
