Bobi (Pronounced Bub•bee) Pearl
Tonight begins the 39th Day of the Omer (May 21-22, 2006), which is five weeks and five days of the omer. May that part of me that is broken in Netzach in Yesod be healed on this day.
Clarity Nurtured by Endurance
My grandmother was 87 in this photograph. She lived to be 98. Bobi Pearl had a very clear vision of what she wanted. And she had great endurance.
Her clarity and endurance didn't always ingratiate her to others. And it didn't always help in her assessments of people. But her comfort with herself motored a life fully lived and many wonderful accomplishments.
On this day of Netzach in Yesod may we see the path ahead and practice knowing that it may take a long time in getting there. And that's okay!
