What yo did was intentional, for your mother. Sometimes shiva and prayers can be rote, what we’re supposed to do. What you did was beautiful and most meaningful to you

Rachel, your memory of your connection to your Ima is very touching and beautiful.

I think Leah Goldberg had a 30-year unconsummated affair with a man she loved very much. After he died, in Tel Aviv, she took the bus every day to that city but didn't remain. She returned to Jerusalem on the next bus. Tragic story which certainly influenced her poetry.

After my mother died and Dad was not well, he’d occasionally say she was skiing in alps with a rich man!!! Of course she never skied in her life! He missed her, but thought she deserved to have some fun!!!!
