Does Your God Know My God?

Well, last weekend I got my first taste of a real-life Jewish Renewal style retreat, okay, not exactly a retreat, but rather an intense Renewal Shabbat.

Last Friday evening and all day Saturday (Shabbat) there was a guest rabbi by the name of Rabbi David Ingber, who basically led services, and taught on subjects related to personal relationships with the divine. Rabbi Ingber  is a young 30 something Zen meditation/yoga kind of Rabbi, who comes out of the Jewish Renewal Tradition.

I’m flickr Tastical

Posted by Avi M on February 21, 2006

Okay so now that I have had a hobby (a new hobby that is) for two full days, I’m ready to unleash my art on an Dakini’s Dancing on Candle Lightunsuspecting world.

I don’t know if am happier with the fact, that I’ve actually taken a couple half decent pictures or that I somehow managed to figure out the backend stuff of getting the images up in Word Press using a flickr plug-in.

I hope you’re proud Marquis, I did all this without one call to you, like a big boy.
Anyhow, if anyone’s interested, feel free to check out my little online exhibition, but be warned I’m a total novice and I am just barely learning how to crawl.
Constructive criticism is always welcome, but don’t make this big boy cry!
