Hope your weekend will be full of vitamin D, and smiles as well. Shabbat Shalom to some of you! :-)

It rained on our parade. Really!

This series is dedicated to the brave people of San Diego who watched or marched at the LGBT Pride Parade, despite the torrential rain of today. Special mention is made to the Temple Emanu-El team (we are used to dry conditions, but we proved that we can outperform under any type of weather ). You will note that no photo of the parade is shown here. I decided to give all my attention to the march. The interaction with the public is a very rich and rewarding experience. Thank you!

Because we are in a severe drought, the strong rain was a blessing.

We can feel the smile of the plants after the rain :-)
