a pretty flower in the concrete sprawl
the Chiligirl did contemplate
the ways of Life, Reason and fate

All the best, forever and today

Your lights warm our hearts and souls, bringing back our lost innocence at least for a night in which we love our family and friends much more,we feel plenty of peace and blessed for all what we have...
Your bright colors make us see elves that live inside you,caught in the ornaments and gifts,under your lights that wrap our hearts we dream and wait for Santa Claus coming home with gifts,as we put on the table cookies and milk for him...
Christmas tree,you make me smile!

A friend...A Friend...A friend...5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
A hard to find treasure,worthy as the most precious jewel...
Someone who loves you unconditionally and someone you love in the same way,
A cherished love one you can always rely on for sharing all your dreams and nightmares,because that friend will always cry and smile with you,
no matter the hour,the day or the month.
A real friend can be the best medicine when sadness,pain and despair come to us because that friend will be with us in every good and bad moment,
during those terrible tribulations and circumstaces that life give us,but also in those moments of plenty happiness through life...because a real friend is someone who will be with you in jail or in a hospital bed and there will never be bundaries nor barriers between real friends...
A friend is like that warm blanket we can reach when we are cold,we can wrap ourselves into it and feel warm,protected and safe...
And we know life has blessed us when we can call someone: My friend.

My trusted one
Who loves cooling rain
more than the sun
You were my muse
For a while my desire
Til I read the signs,
Damped down the fire
A few tears shed
No problem at all
Then a deep breath
And try to walk tall
Full of surpises
All truly heard
I gave you my word
There for advice
Eachtime I would ask
Nothing too much
No mean a task
There to adore
To remind you what living
really is for
I owe you bigtime
For words past and new
And for just being there
I truly thank you
Thankyou for being
Above all my friend
I love you and wish you
The best til the end

begging my attentions, existing only

About MeMy full name is Rivka Temima Kellner, though in Israel it would be pounced Ree-vka Temeema .About Me6 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
I was born in Newportnews Va. In 1975 to my father a professor of Jewish thought and my mother then a nurse and my brother Avinoam who was then four days shy of four [I think he wished I came with a clear return policy].
When I was three we came to Israel for a year that we spent in Jerusalem and the second floor of the same building my parents live in to this day.
The next year we spent in Richmond Va. I have fuzzy memories of that year. A bit from kindergarten and the synagogue and my slide in the back yard, also bits and pieces of the surgery to fix crossed eyes.
We moved to Israel when I was five, so I don't really remember learning Hebrew. I still have friends I met that year in kindergarten. We were now living in the ninth floor of the same building a year later when I was in first grade in Rambam [Maimonides] primary school a state fund
