A rabbi, chaplain, liturgist, photographer, poet, teacher & tutor, storyteller, blogger and sometimes humorist is me. A father, grandfather, friend and sweetheart is me. A Warriors and Bulls basketball fan, 49er and Chicago Bear football fan and Chicago Cub baseball fan is me. A creative liberal and Democrat is me.
Two hundred baby namings is me, five hundred B’nai Mitzvot is me, a thousand weddings is me and two thousand funerals is me. A five-string banjo is me. A collection of art, sculpture and music is me. Four old Nikon cameras is me. Suits, shirts, neckties and cuff links is me.
I am these things and I know that they are more than labels, more than possessions. They help me express the content of deeper realities, like heart and soul.
