29 Menachem Av, on the eve of Rosh Chodesh Elul 5769
I have not written for a long time - I have not expressed myself to you in writing, and I am also so unfamiliar with these things, and also not accustomed. I can not write songs - just appreciate the pearls of others ...
Thirty-eight years !!! And sixteen years together !! It's really amazing.
It has been trite to talk about ups and downs, waves and waves, periods and eras. Somehow, as time goes on, even such a look becomes self-evident, and it's good that way. And really, really, really what comes out of it at a glance - the bottom line - really: they are the same little moments of the "together", the same meeting points, both in the "rising" moments, and in the declines.
It seems to me that over time the "hard times" and the "pleasant times" both become faded and pale and what floats and rises clearly together is the "and all" (and not ...).
And if you say, then what? I will tell you things, true to the truth (as R. Elyakim says): In these kisses, in this launch, in countless points that connect to a delicate line like the lines of your paintings, your "I" flows to me - without all the outer shells and masks - a real "I" Yours - you are as you are (maybe the opposite is also true, but I'm not talking about it).
I know you Yes, yes I am very very exciting that I know you. And the same "I am" that I meet at all those meeting points, is full of the power of faith, a flurry of deep, deep faith as sweet as wine, and I suck at it and lean on it. full of love.
I am overwhelmed - and not always able to know how to return. More and more, I understand and feel and know clearly that this is who you are for me and without you I have no existence at all, and these things intensify over time, and not the other way around.
And the verse is fully fulfilled in you, in the fullest sense of the word, "As it was then and as now," as it was in all its power you were then, always, and now and in the future.
You have no idea how much I love you with all my heart ...
Your loving wife
