That's one crazy fire. I'm not surprised by the insanely dangerous look of it, because my husband made it last night. Turns out he was quite the pyro in his day. Lucky for me, my oldest son is proudly following in his footsteps. Can I blame in on hubby's mutated genes? What a silly question! Of course I can!
Faulty genetics aside, today is Lag B'Omer! It's the anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest sages of all time, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai zy"a. Rabbi Shimon composed the Holy Zohar, which contains the deep Kabbalistic secrets of the Torah and all of creation. Today is a very auspicious day to wish for anything you want (assuming it's good for you,) and in the merit of Rabbi Shimon may you receive it!
Here is a short article explaining the significance of this holy and joyous day. PLUS, you can listen to music today, which is a great reason to do some serious partying!*
Great. I totally erased the paragraph that was here a second ago, and I have no idea what it said! Anyhow, don't forget that Rav Brody and crew are on their way to North America for his incredible, ground-breaking, astounding, awesome, mind-blowing "Break Through" tour! Here's the full tour schedule. Have a fantastic day!
*no drinking, smoking, hand-holding, flirting, ogling, eating carbs, sugar, dairy, fat, or juicy, delicious medium-rare steaks unless I can have one. Ditto for the drinking. I'd love me a cold glass of crisp, sparkling champagne. Gotta adjust to the "two weeks alone with my five wild animals who happen to be the loudest ones on the block" thing. Of course, the fact that their mother is a roaring lioness with an Iraqi temper doesn't help things.
