I smile as I play behind white feathers strung at entrance to a trendy store in The Grove 
that tourists desired to visit this holiday season.

Given a photo challenge:
"Shoot yourself doing something crazy in public. Capture your essence, the way you feel.

My essence includes loving (meeting) a good challenge, fun or serious. My essence pursues justice (Tzedek, Tzedek, Tirdof) and that includes being aware of Loshan Hara/wrongful slanderous speech. 
My spiritual soul loves wearing garments of purple.
The tiny bird in composite, shot this week at the grave of my husband, z"l, on his 10th yahrzeit, was pointed out to me by my granddaughter.
(Since the 1970's I've loved the elegant doves in Spanish artist Alvar's paintings. His art celebrates the joy of life.)

I always enjoy finding feathers (a long white swan feather in local Lake Balboa), but I feel pain if feathers are from victims of violence.
I attach purple feathers to my kipot/head coverings.
I think of feathers and I think of the only possession my beloved Grandma Ethel, z”l, brought with her to America from Russia on arduous ship rides over 100 years ago– her feather pillow that she gave to me. There is a destroyed feather pillow in Fiddler on the Roof. Grandma taught me to be careful with words. "If a feather pillow is busted, one can’t retrieve the feathers blown away, as one can not retrieve ill spoken words. If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all", said Grandma Ethel. She died in Atlanta, Georgia in 1988, age 88. I hold her in my heart. Grandma Ethel said that the Klu Klux Klan threatened to “tar and feather” her because of her kindness to the black folk, including Rev. Martin Luther King, obm.

What is my Essence?
My essence is spiritual, joyous. creative, sentimental, and connected in kindness, love and truth.
