The epic novel

I disagree with many people, when I say that most bloggers are not writers. I am definitely not a writer. I'm a blogger, and of the least intersting type: I write a "Me Blog", about nothing in particular, just my life. Not a political, gastro or running blog. It's just about me.

I have two novel ideas that I have been cherishing for quite a while. I started one, and never got far with it: I lack the actualy writing talent tand perseverence toactually finish it. It would be a very nice contemporary story, though.

The other one... I have the first and last sentences for it, and I have the title. I just need to write that cca 1200 pages that would go between those two sentences. This is a story, that i have always wanted to tell, and it's a story that has been very close to my heart. I have to admit, that my love for Kosztolányi's prose and Márai's Embers  also contribute towards wanting to share this story.

In other news, the second, Hanukkah issue of Michal's Tefillin is now online. There is an interview with Vanessa Hidary, aka the Hebrew Mamita, Sara Fryd, Chanukah gift ideas, poetry, the wonderful Miss Alexandra and more! (Yes, I notice I spelled  חנוכה two different ways within the same sentence. And yes, I have a few more ideas of how else it could be spelled.) Go, check it out! Now!

In yet other news, Kosher Kola is now majorly delayed. I have been sick for over a week now, and after graduating from bronchitis to pneumonia, I never got around to forcing my kids to let their creative juices flow. Or baking challah. Anyone willing to bake challah, take photos and share the recipe to be on


  1. If an atheist/agnostic challah will suffice....Sign me up!

  2. I'm so sorry you guys have been poorly! I hope you don't ever have to deal with this again, but I just heard on The Doctor's show that you can unstick crusty sore eyes with a 1 to 10 solution of baby shampoo and warm water. Be sure to keep the cotton balls from touching anyone else once you've wiped the eye. You're dealing with a pretty contagious problem.

    The Lord once used "pink eye" in a miraculous way to get my son home from his USMC air traffic controller job in Quantico VA. He wasn't going to be able to get leave for his cousin's wedding until he got conjuctivitis. His superiors then wanted him out of the tower with a quickness! He rushed home to Seattle and healed up nicely. Who woulda thought?

  3. oh...and your relationship to your half-brother's half-sister's husband? Uhhh...I think it's "extended family on my brother's side." Or the catch-all "shirt-tail relative." Or perhaps "Frank" or whatever his name is....:)

  4. Hope you feel better. The Lord's plan is good in all things...... even when we don't see it.
