Are we still staying just with Psalm 1 today?
funny, to me rendering is a drawing. 😀
@david: still on psalm 1
The psalms are poetry, so why not allow poetic liberties with syntax? :)

Does the google drive have a way for us to comment on each other’s interpretations, and maybe post our own? It would be cool if the discussion could continue via posting or wiki.

Jeremy Lawrence: My First PsalmThe man standing there by the steps to the schulIn his kippah with tallis bag in hand,He is happy, he is fortunate, he is praiseworthy.He has not walked in the counsel of the wickedHe has not stood in the ways of the sinfulHe has not sat with those that scorn.He has dwelt in the words of prayerHe has whispered exaltations to the divineHe has cleaved to the source of his strength by day and by night.He is a tree whose roots reach into the earth to growWho stands forever by the waters. He will not be moved,
Sure. I will research how to do it.
And I who am forever restless, unquiet, unsure,Blown by the wind like chaff from wheatRootless, un-watered bearing no fruit season after seasonAnd never understanding why.After all, I do not walk in the counsel of the wickedI do not stand in the ways of the sinfulI do not sit with those that scorn.But then againI do not cleave to any source,I go my own way.It is a way I know well which has no destination.
is there an email list I would share that with? Or an address for you?
I stand besides the sink and wash my hands again and againTwenty seconds for holding my penis in my handTwenty seconds for touching foodTwenty seconds for emptying the garbageSoap and water, hand sanitizer -- will they ever be clean?Did I cough? Did I sneeze? Will I die?The doubt keeps me on the runBut still I will not walk in the counsel of the wickedOr stand in the ways on the sinfulOr sit with those that scornI merely wander and wonder.And wonder as I wanderThat there is wonder. Still.firstname.lastname@example.org
how can we see this so that we can find it later. I have many shared google doc but I always have to go back to the original link. Any other way?
Oh yes, I read Jeremy’s Psalm. DEEPLY moved. Cried.
Judy the chat is posted with the recordings - CBST in challenging times on website
Judy, you should be able to download Jeremy’s Psalm from the link I posted above.
@Judy in Google drive you should have a section "shared with me"
Joy fills the one who seeks out the Holy One, rather than listening to those who advocate misalignment, or walk toward unrighteousness, or surround themselves with those who don't strive to grow.Surround yourself with goodness, that you may enhance your goodness, and discover the satisfaction of soulful learning and reflection.In stepping toward the Holy One, one moves to the place of strength: feet planted in the soil as a tree by a river, radiant and fruit-bearing, undeterred by transientweather.Those who step away from the Holy One will find themselves weakened in storms, left in the darkness of unrealized potential and contentment.
that is mine, above
we also have water from nature in psalm 1 (stream)
think of the union song "just like a tree that's standing in the water, we shall not be moved."
That’s wonderful - the union song, Ruth
I just got here
Jeremy do you want to read your psalm

how do we find the psalms . how do i find psalm 2 in order to study fir minday
Steven here is one source - https://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt2602.htm

Thank you, Jeremy. You managed to weave in our modern-people anxiety into the ancient text. :)

Thank you Jeremy…so moving
everything will be in the google drive, i believe
Thank you for clarity on this time
thank you for sharing
I would like to help organize our collective sharing of our psalms. I just looked up starting a google discussion board, and it’s a bit complicated. is there a way I could work with someone here to do this? How can I get everyone’s email?
Yes re email
David did you get my email?
Yes, getting the email
Allison Drew Klein
yes, getting the emails
be in touch with me and we will coordinate on this
I love that because none of us is all righteous or all sinful - we are in that middle space, aspiring to be Shasha’s oak street
I am not getting email
I love the variety of approaches, i.e. a personal translation vs. including midrash in the text.
Allison Drew Klein
Thank you Rabbi, again and again.
Yes to getting the Email.
