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

A wonderful artist; a wonderful mind.

Eid Hadaleen, a self-taught artist from the village (Umm al-Khair), fashions perfect miniatures, using pliers, cutting and hammering tools, and iron wiring that has been heated up. (From Haaretz)

A great weekend for all of you, and Shabbat Shalom for some of you!

… because it’s Friday …

“How was your week?”

“I had to make some hard calls.”

“… and it was hard to keep the equilibrium!”

“Even the weather did not collaborate. Especially in the mornings. It was more a matter of black and white, and their variations.”

“And I could not see much ahead because of the hurdles in front of me.”

“Each of the flowers corresponds to a phone call received at the office. Not weekly, but daily!”

“The one flower corresponds to the number of successful transactions (only one!) over the phone; not daily, but weekly!”

“In summary, it was a rough week! 😦 “

“But today is Friday! (Finally … 🙂 )

… and the weekend promises:

... better weather ...

… better weather …

... a longer walk with the dog ...

… a longer walk with the dog …

... and more time with the family.

… and more time with the family.

Shabbat Shalom to some of you, and a GREAT weekend to all of you! 🙂

I am getting ready for the long weekend. Memorial Day is this Monday.

I am getting ready for the long weekend. Memorial Day is this Monday.

My preparation includes listening to this beautiful composition ‘Canto Ostinato’ (“Obstinate Song”) written by the Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, here played by Piano Ensemble.

Good news on Thursday (from the USA Today): “The president of the Boy Scouts of America on Thursday called for an end to the group’s ban on gay troop leaders.” … “I (Robert Gates) must speak as plainly and bluntly to you as I spoke to presidents when I was director of the CIA and secretary of Defense,” he said. “We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be. The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained.”

Does Nature prepare herself also for a day of rest and thoughts?
