May Rabbi Gordon rest in peace and get nachos from his teachings. Today apropos corona.
Watching the beautiful tall flames of my candles on Friday night, they were stable and don't flicker. The candles that I like to buy. Look like 'omdim' but they are 'mehalchim' - striving on the spot to leave the candle, but their very existence is bound up with the ongoing supply of man- made wax - from this world and oxygen supply from Hashem. The whole mechanism and equilibrium is G's genius. Of course they extinguish in the end but while they burn, there is a surrender to their physical limitations and role on the planet, played to the absolute maximum until the last molecule of wax has been consumed.
