The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Go Back to the Garden you were Picked From


My Lunch in the Garden. Here's a mini-recipe for you all: Tomatoes and Basil freshly picked from my Grandfather's garden, with salt, Goat Feta and Olive Oil


I'm feeling rather annoyed right now -I've been in Montreal too long now with not enough to do.
I've been wanting to write a post, but what I have in my mind to write doesn't come out . . .

In short I've become rather frustrated with this blog.

I don't know why really, as it's not like this blog is an active entity that can some how pose hindrance in my ability to express my ideas, nor is it the fault of my Blog that I can't keep myself entertained.

At the moment, however, the magic is gone.

Gone are the days where I was so excited to write up an exciting new post, when I would tinker with the HTML, find new widgets to put in the code, and the like. The magic just aint there.

I used to look at my stats to find out which posts drew people, who linked to me and the like. Right now I only use it find out when a Shadchan is looking at my name (They're the ones who Google my name [I once saw someone Google, "Is the name Lightstone Jewish" -to which I wish to state two facts: a. Lightstone is as Jewish a name as Goldstein -infact they mean almost the same thing (a gold as opposed to a light stone). b. Jews have been using non-Jewish names for quite some time now -Names such as Basha, Cherna, and Zlata are all Slavic, and Feivel, Shprintza and Dreiza are Romance (of Latin origin that is) -so please get off your high horse], and then look through the blog's history, with special emphasis on such important topics as: 770, Matisyahu, Movies, Mental Health, Divorce, and Drug History)

I'm not leaving, I've invested too much here, and at the end of the day I enjoy doing this way too much (and I'll miss my blog friends even more) . . . but at the moment it's bugging me.

Anyhow, I'm off to bed. Tomorrow is another post.

Which stats are those? Part of the Blogger framework? I would love to see who is googling my Creedmoor blog (which will close once and for all by Rosh Hashanah).

I enjoyed your notes on the names. I think I have a relative named Shprintza.

Nemo said...

Get off your high horse ... these people aren't Shadchanim ... they're nutty, bored people nosing through your blog for any personal info they can find.

-Etrog Center: Posting advertisements like that in my comments is spam. Please refrain from doing it again (it is also spam when you do iot on facebook)

-Itzhak: I use Statcounter.

-Leora: The name comes from the name Esperanza!

-Nemo: I have enough secondary evidence to more then believe that it is -If you truly wish to know, I could tell you in person.

And Goldstein is a German name as are so many "Jewish" surnames - there was a famous Nzi named Rosenberg (serves a certain Jewish anti-Semitic blogger of said surname right), and a frum singer of the early 90's shares his surname with the editor of Der Shtuermer (no, not Ha'aretz - the real Der Shtuermer)- Streicher.

Also, for the record, Feivel is not Romance/Latin in origin (you may mean the less common Feitel, from the Latin Vitus) - Feivel is said to be derived from the name of the Greek getschke Phoebus!

Finally, the Admou"r meCreedmoor was the one checking on your surname because it isn't ethnic enough for him to recruit you into his next and last Affirmative Action scam!

Nemo said...

Speaking of affirmative action ... you heard the one (not a joke) about the half-South African half-American bochur that applied to an Ivy League school as an African-American?

Der Shygetz said...

Did someone really try that? I have heard many stories of such things.

Mottel said...

-Der Shygetz: You're right, I was merely being lazy and figured by lumping Greek and Latin together, no one would notice.

Condolences, I was sorry to read of your grandfathers passing.In the Living Torah for Parshas Ki Tzeitzei, the Rebbe encourages a writer to do more, not less writing, and especially on Jewish topics. Your ability to present your thoughts so eruditely is refreshing. Your essays on international Jewish life are not only picturesque, they evoke a full range of emotions. Reading your blog and articles on Chabad.org is a pleasure. The photographs display a true artistic eye.Keep it up!
