#21 Ki Tissa  (Maqam Hijaz)

Maqam Hijaz - named for a region within modern Saudi Arabia, is associated with death and other mournful occasions. 


Sometimes I feel so

Sometimes I feel so

Separate --

ordinary and separate.


A few drop dead experiences please --

in the midst of ordinariness

a reminder

what we are all about. 


This and This. 

Radically And --


There is no place empty   [Zohar]

We are radically And. 

We know this mostly --  

HaShem Is Elokeinu, Hashem only.


Mi-zeh u-mi-zeh     [Ex. 32:15]

this and this

no that


no that at all.
