20 toward the Omer

Getting enough sleep is essential
to functioning during halakha shiur
but prayer can be enhanced by a bit of tiredness

Like at Shavuot Shacharit when all I ask God for is a short Musaf and a bed waiting for me

That’s not true.
Last Shavuot I did not ask for those things
although Musaf was ridiculous
and I exhausted laughed

Even so nothing pulls me like my desire to return to sleep does
other than my desire to keep reading

I think of those who heard and felt the explosions this afternoon. May compassion reign supreme soon in our days
