Reflecting, Lucky Shot

There are times I feel that G-d has aimed my camera and planned the shot.  This one is an example.


At some time in the future, G-d willing, bli neder, I'll post more from that visit to the Kotel in Jerusalem's Old City.  I walked from the center of town, having a couple of hours to kill and nothing to do.  So I figured that it would be a good idea to go, even though I knew I'd be there soon for a Bar Mitzvah.  But a Bar Mitzvah isn't the same as just being alone at the Kotel, with G-d and my prayers.  That day was just perfect.  I took the path I've always taken, except for the year we lived in the Old City.  I love walking on the road in the inside of the walls.  You can just keep focusing on Har HaBayit, The Temple Mount.

Sometimes I need the "solitary" experience to feel attached to G-d.  It's funny, but I don't remember much else about that day or why I had that free time.  I'm glad that I have the pictures on which to build memories...
