Hello, I was going to put off publishing this blog, indefinitely. The blog was just a twinkle in my eye, nowhere near ready for public consumption.
But in thinking about our current situation and asking myself what can I contribute, I noted I have precious few skills I can offer online. Not the greatest chef, gardener, technician, no legal expertise to share…Then I remembered, oh there’s this little blog I’ve been writing, for the past year, in private, which might be ready for public viewing, in say, 2028?
I realized, now is my time to share my little corner of the world with you. Getting right down to it:
* Help people reconnect and become happy (or happier) in their Judaism.
* Help people of any (or no) religion reconnect with their inner core/inner light.
Vivi’s Jewish Adventures tells the story of how I came to fall in love with my Jewish roots. My readers are anyone who would like to feel happier in their own roots, whatever those may be. I use the colorful people and events from my personal life, plus my struggles and what I’ve learned, as a hopeful spark for others. I was graced with amazing, interesting, funny characters in my life. Sometimes what comes with interesting people also includes challenges. I am probably also an interesting character myself.
Please come visit – all are welcome!
I hope to tell stories that open my heart to yours, that ripple the grace I’ve received outwards, and that spread forward from you too.
and will ripple
to other others…
As a by the way, with all my researching, questioning and person to person interrogations, I should have a PhD in how to become comfortable with being Jewish. I’ll consider this my dissertation. Fortunately, there is no graduation. Judaism now lights my life from the inside out. I am happier and more connected with people of all beliefs, than I ever was all those years that I thought this would pull me apart from others.
One other bookkeeping point before I begin. Originally, I was going to post this in chronological order. I’ve completely thrown that idea overboard. I jump around from present to past to theory to ancient tale. You’ll see. Please join me as we go deep into one woman’s experience which could be any woman’s. ©
p.s. I love your comments. Please feel free to add your thoughts and experiences under ANY post. It would be wonderful to get to know you a bit, and for readers to get to know each other. 💖
