Not Dead!!!




For those of you that care I made it home from Hunt Valley without killing myself or anyone else. It was snowing when I left, but I followed all the safety tips anyone has EVER given me. I am posting a pic of the hotel room, just so you can see how nice it was. I slept so well. I am home now. Watching the olympics, which gives me something to do.
Last Sunday, I went out with my friend all day, which was really nice. The pics of the scary fish, and the Medievil looking stuff is from there. We had a good time. I am sorry it took me so long to post pics, but I was busy with the NEFESH conference this week. I am not certain that I am making sense, but make of it what you will.
I will share one thought before I go. I went to a shiur (academic lecture) today. The subject was "How does Bitachon (faith in G-D) affect anxiety and depression?" It was AMAZING! He proved, with empirical evidence, that the more one has Bitachon, the less anxious, and depressed they are going to be. It was really cool. I was impressed.
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What if someone was exceptionally cynical and had bitachon that hashem is punishing all of us??? They would be depressed because of their Bitachon. Seriously though, bitachon is a beautiful thing. Did you play in the snow today? You should come visit us here in sunny, warm Detroit!!!

The study actually covered the notion that "Hashem is out to get me" www.jpsych.com very very cool! Yes i played in the snow, took me half an hour to dig my car out, then some yahoo dumped a bunch of snow in front of my car
