Peace and Quiet

Ft Worth Water Gardens


This is the park across my new Law School.  I can enjoy it if I show up really early for school.  I couldn't see myself hanging out here after my classes, which is at 10 PM.  It's still downtown, you know.  I was struck by the solemnity of the place when it was empty of people on a Monday morning.  On a good news, I am really glad that my 4 boys are walking to shul on Saturdays now.  It's been about 6 years since I went inside for service.  I guess when I fell off the wagon, I just really fall all the way.  What a commitment huh?  Anyway, I went in there to check out the facility for a Bar Mitzvah. I was thinking that they really have wonderful and comfortable seating now, probably got their furniture from church chair. I was amazed. I could see myself sitting there for the longest time and just enjoy the silence. I remember how my back used to hurt sitting on a wooden bench before. This is definitely an improvement.
