"He Said he Wanted Five Daughters...
...named for the expressions of happiness;
Gila, Rinah, Ditza, Hedva...and Ahava".
Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture, 2010 (his parents do the fantastic Seraphic Press blog), Dennis Prager. I so need to give serious heed to this counsel. I am on my way to surrendering to despair, of the dimensional variety. I can no longer fend off the intuition that I will pass with no one to say kaddish for me. Screw intuition - time to pull a 180 a la "Prager" - whether happiness is a mitzvah or not, I'm taking something of Ariel's dream for mine.
