Yankees in Charleston

by A. Jay Adler on August 31, 2009

What were the odds? Or how to eat up the day.

Two bicycle tires flat, at two different times, a scooter throttle malfunctioning.

And the dogs ate our homework – after our grandmothers died.

More blogging tomorrow. Unless a meteor hits.

Hey guys -

Here is a prayer we used to say when I was a kid growing up in Israel. It is called Tefilat Haderech – prayer for the road/travel. Here is the English translation from Wiki:

“May it be Your will, LORD, our God and the God of our ancestors, that You lead us toward peace, guide our footsteps toward peace, and make us reach our desired destination for life, gladness, and peace. May You rescue us from the hand of every foe, ambush along the way, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth. May You send blessing in our handiwork, and grant us grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us. May You hear the sound of our humble request because You are God Who hears prayer requests. Blessed are You, Adonai, Who hears prayer.”

Please accept this as a gesture of good will and for hopes you have better days than you did today. Of course, then there’s always St. Christopher, patron St. of travel….

Best,
Naomi
