Owl Side

One of the most lovely prayer/meditation-y things that I've come across...

At the end of services, we always say the Kaddish, the prayer in memory of the dead. Before we do, we tend to have little meditations in the book that we can read silently to ourselves. My favorite has always been this one. For some reason, it reads like poetry in my head, with a sort of gravelly male voice narrating (like the one at the beginning of the recent Mummy movies).

I loves it, precious.
