shabbat

Shabbat

So, running myself ragged, I realized, was bound to end somewhere.
I guess it ended partway through my second month of back-to-back engagements.

All I want is a room somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air.
With one enormous chair,
Aow, wouldn't it be loverly?...
Aow, so loverly sittin' abso-bloomin'-lutely still.
I would never budge 'till spring
Crept over me windowsill.

-Eliza Dolittle, "My Fair Lady"
Peace when trouble blows,
Jehovah sees, Jehovah knows;
He is my peace, when sorrow nears,
Jehovah sees, Jehovah hears.
Like the breath, I need to live,
Jehovah takes, Jehovah gives;
Gives me peace,When trouble blows,
Jehovah sees, Jehovah knows.
- Peace
