CPR to the Rescue!

B'SD 3 Shvat, 5779 I was with some friends last evening and one of them suddenly looked rather ill. A doctor, he was feeling weak, dizzy, and a bit nauseated. He seemed to be struggling to breathe. ​I asked permission to feel his face and neck to check for clammy skin. It was dry and warm to the touch. I asked if his left arm felt painful. ​  ​He was slow to respond "No, my stomach bothers me." My concern grew. He turned quite pale. I gave him a pr...

Float that Boat!

B'SD (Whoops, I'd meant to post this earlier on Monday) A friend and I were chatting the other day and she spoke of feeling frustrated at not having achieved a goal. I asked "What went wrong?" and she replied with a description of how she'd overestimated how much strength, insight, and patience she had to handle a specific task. Sound familiar? We've all  been through this. We spoke of the goal she had in mind, and I joked "That boat won't float if you use the wrong materials. Bui...

B'SD 24 Tevet,  5779 Whew, my recent messages focused on my healing realities.
