I am a writer and a Mommy. I am a devout Jew. These are the most important books I have read: The Tao te Ching by Lao Tzu, Stephen Mitchell translation. Spiritual Divorce by Debbie Ford. Living Inspired by Akiva Tatz. My kitchen would suggest I'm a closet carny, as would my love of Branson.

The 7th night is special

When we light the candles tonight, we think of the seven divine realms.

chesed (love)
gevurah (strength)
tiferet (compassion)
netzach (perseverance)
hod (humility)
yesod (intimacy)
malkhut (groundedness)

and some people think of 7 women they know who embody these qualities or 7 of their female ancestors.

I'm thinking about Diane, who embodies the 7 sefirot and whom I love so much.  I would like to be more like her.

Happy Chanukah!
