I have enjoyed a peaceful shabbos, with a dusk walk with a friend at Viele Lake, the goose families, other folks' dogs, moonrise.
Morning services at the Conservative shul were followed by a glorious lunch, and a few of us diehards staying for Torah discussion. This week is one of my favorite sedras: high comedy, complete with talking donkey, and a prophet who, as a professional, would like to please his employer, but (as he warned him in advance,) can only speak what G-d puts in his mouth---and those words are not at all what his employer wanted.
For the first time in a long while I had a real, deep and dreamless shabbos nap.
Before shabbos began, I arranged with my local internet server to inform those who send me emails that I plan not to be going on line until afternoon, and never on Jewish holidays or shabbos. Having done that, I hope not to feel guilty about beginning the morning with my own work, and not facing the insistent demands of the internet until afternoon. I hope it will work.
I am deeply rested, as the shabbos intends for us, and ready to sleep and dream.
