I just stepped out on to my balcony to check on my drying clothes.
The balcony overlooks a canal and on the other side of the canal is an elementary school.
Frequently I hear the band playing, especially in the early morning and sometimes in the late afternoon. The young Thai kids play with energy and enthusiasm. I usually hear Itsy Bitsy Spider. Occasionally they play Stars and Stripes Forever.
Just as I stepped out this afternoon, the band was playing Hava Nagila! I am not kidding. The notes from the glockenspiel were quite clear.
Is Someone trying to tell me something? I haven't been in shul in months.
I think I'll go tonight.
So, my friends, Shabbat Shalom.
