Omer Day 1: Hesed b’Hesed

Lovingkindness within Lovingkindness
First day of the journey. Lovingkindness. Love and kindness.

Reb Shlomo said, when you get a present, some people ask, what?
What is it?
Other people ask, who?
Who gave it to me?

I say some people, like Reb Shlomo himself, ask what? And who? And who-and-who-and-who?
What really am I receiving?
Who gave it to me?
And who gave it to them, and to them, and to them?

Through the merit of those who’ve given gifts to us,
I want to begin the journey here. Will I see you on the way?
If we keep going, where will this lead?
