Great way to begin this blog: talking about cold showers in Israeli apartments. Can't write much now: waiting for the plumber to arrive to check the dud shemesh. My wife's not here anyway; nothing wrong with a few cold showers. I'm so busy doing things that only last night I glimpsed the Jerusalem sky pinkish as the city went to down to sleep. Earthly and heavenly. And then there's the kubeh soup at Hamusta. So through my myopia of thought reality the place and people intrude once in a while. Great learning with Halbertal on the Jewish welfare state. What I wouldn't give to flip pages of the Bavli looking for the apropos story the way I flip through Jane Austen...
