A mazal

I suck at fiction, and I suck at photography, but I happen to like this old photo of mine.


(New Orleans, 2004)
There is no blade of grass below that does not have a mazal above that strikes it and says: “Grow!”

The Real Shliach said...

It's in the gemarah.

excellent. Now I can quote it everytime my dad mows the lawn.

The Real Shliach said...

Why would you do that?

sarabonne said...

Because I can.

I don’t remember what the guy was wearing; I took the picture from a car. But his clothes look white because it was sunny and I have increased the contrast.

He looked very American to me, that’s why I took the picture.

(Of course, then I had to speed up, as he started chasing after me.)
