This movie, Ripple Reflections #2 With Joy, was created by me a few months ago to honor my 90 year old beloved mentor friend, Edith, because she serves as my 'life guard' at her swimming pool each summer. For several years we have closely bonded sharing a deep lingering friendship filled with loving-kindness, compassion, differences, respect, laughter, truth and joy. Edith composts and gardens, and I eat her harvest.
I live out my inner child at Edith's home. A Christian woman, Edith reminds me each Elul about Cheshbon HaNefesh / accounting of the soul, wondering if I will ask forgiveness from her for anything that I think I wrongly did. I always ask her forgiveness and Edith always says, "There's nothing to forgive." Edith is so forgiving.
