travelogue entry: This is the last leg of my journey, whereof I will be visiting with my Mom for the first time in three years. I intend to spend Shabbos with her, beginning this Friday evening (parasha Chayei Sarah). It has been a long journey since I left AZ by Amtrak on Tuesday morning, Oct. 18th. I spent three weeks in New Jersey visiting with my family, after attending my nephew’s bar Mitzvah there. I attended a family Hasidic wedding in Borough Park, a week ago last Sunday. And, now, two weeks with my Mom, beginning tomorrow, after a week’s long convalescence.
