Something I just realized

Talking to Sally about Buffy helped me to realize why I like some aspects of Judaism.

Willow visits Tara’s gravesite and leaves stones. She leaves stones because it is the Jewish tradition — flowers die. Stones are permanent, or as permanent as something can be.

The basis of so many of the Jewish customs is about being deliberate. About doing things and living life deliberately. I like that.

Deliberate \De*lib”er*ate\, v. i.
To take counsel with one’s self; to weigh the arguments for
and against a proposed course of action; to reflect; to
consider; to hesitate in deciding; — sometimes with on,
upon, about, concerning.
