The Song Remains The Same - And Yet, Everything Changes!

Today is the first relatively "normal" (whatever that means) programming day  for Lorelai in what seems like a long time - we had plague, theft, storm, holidays, Acts-of-G-d -type interruptions in our regularly scheduled program, and so much more behind-the-scenes drama it's a wonder we're not totally crazy. No, not really a wonder - OK so maybe we ARE crazy, but you like it that way, right?

Hard to believe we're more than halfway through Sivan. This is a hard time of year - the last half of Sivan until the last half of Av - two months of every possibility of troubles, and yet - we believe The Song Remains The Same - and what song is that? The songs the Levites sang in the Holy Temple every day, whether they are sung today or not, remain the same - and G-d willing we'll be singing them together again, one day soon. The Song Remains The Same - and yet everything changes. We're in that space but don't worry, everything old is new again and that which was lost will be found and it'll be just like a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago...

Summer is at the door. Travel (the characteristic of  the month of Sivan) is at hand. Radio Free Nachlaot will be taking several road trips this summer - but don't worry, we'll be taking you along with us - and you will enjoy the ride, we promise!
