    • ״כי אבא שלי יודע המון, עברית צרפתית ואפילו חשבון״. קצת על (שירה של) אבא שלי.

      אז אבא שלי, באמת יודע המון. ממש. (למרות שהמשפט השגור בפיו הוא ״But what do I know״) עם זאת, שירה הוא כותב מגיל מאוד צעיר. ובד״כ, אני פחות מבין שירה בכלל, ולצערי - את של אבא שלי - בפרט. אבל לאחרונה, זכיתי לקרוא ביקורת בעברית על השירה שלו, שנכתבה לפני מלאןתלאפים שנה (אולי ב-1988... כמה זה בשנים? זה נכתב במכונת כתיבה... זה כמה) - וכולל תרגום לעברית של פואמה שלו שאני זוכר (לא בעל פה, אבל מספיק בכדי עלי רושם). אז הנה המקור באנגלית, ואחריו התרגום בעברית, שתורגם על ידי המבקר - שמואל שתל ז״ל. I want what I want and get what I don't, and that, dear heart, is comic. I want what I want and get what I want, and that dear heart, is tragic. I want what I want and get just enough to hurt, dear heart, and that's life. But sometimes I want not even nothing, and that, that, dear heart, is joy. רוצה מה שרוצה ומשיג את שלא רוצה, וזה לבי הטוב, זה מגוחך. רוצה מה שרוצה ומשיג את מה שרוצה, וזה לבי הטוב, זה טראגי. רוצה מה שרוצה ומשיג רק עד להכאיב, לבי הטוב, אלה החיים. אך לפעמים אני רוצה, אף לא לא-כלום, וזאת, זאת, לבי הטוב, שמחה. חלק לא פחות משמעותי שהשאיר עלי רושם באותה ביקורת הייתה הצורה בה סיכם את הביקורת במשפט מפותל מלא ניגודים ש״תופס״ כל-כך יפה את אבא שלי (וכנראה שגם את השירה שלו): ״...שירה אופטימית מתוך ספקנות הורסת-מוסכמות ואמונה-בונה גם יחד...״ ״ optimistic poetry driven by convention-wreaking and faith-building skepticism״ *** הערה לקורא: באנגלית, המילה want - ובפרט בביטוי I want - כפל משמעות אפשרי - רצון כמו גם חוסר. I want פרושו גם ״אני רוצה״ וגם ״חסר לי״. שווה לקרוא את הפואמה שוב עכשיו...

    • חג סוכות נגמר - אבל בשנה הבאה יש סוכות שוב!

      (In case you need an English version, it follows the Hebrew version) טרי-טרי ממוצ״ש האחרון: טיפ של אלופים לפירוק סוכה. כידוע החלק הכי קשה בפירוק סוכה הוא גלגול הסכך והכנסה שלו לתיק האחסון. טיפ: גלגלו את הסכך הדוק, קשרו אותו באזיקון בודד באמצע. פרוייקט שלקח 10 דקות לשני אנשים - הושלם ב-2 דקות... לבד! בום! בעיה פתורה!‎ LPT: the hardest part of taking apart the סוכה is trying to fit the סכך into its storage bag. Tip: after rolling the סכך tightly - tie it down with zip-tie אזיקון. Boom! Problem solved!

    • Two features to help you HACK(*) your Zoom sessions!

      (*) First, full disclosure: by "Hack" - I mean "Socially Hack" - not steal passwords or anything, but simply offer and derive greater value from you Zoom session (or any other vid-con system) These days, it seems we all host online video-meetings. Maybe a business meeting. A family reunion. A drink with friends you haven't seen in a while - online. A workout. And as host, you have power. You can start the meeting. You can end the meeting. But most importantly - you can Mute All! Oh, the sweet power. The ability to make people quiet - and have them listen to you. The power to decide who-speaks-when (and maybe even more intoxicating - who-stops-speaking!). So the first feature you can use - is your self-restraint. Don't Mute All! At all costs. Unless it's a lecture, with a pre-defined Q&A session at the end, you want to allow people to talk to you, to each other, to voice thoughts and opinions that may be different from yours. That may sometime be unpleasant - but always will be of greater value than the alternative - rehashing your own ideas over and over again. The second feature, is the almost opposite of the Mute All button - it's the Mute Self. Learning to be quiet is the first step in learning to listen - which is great step in learning anything. So much for how to better utilize your online sessions by avoiding Mute All and endorsing Mute Self. This post was "born" during a fevered discussion about freedom-of-speech, and its limits (if any), and the power-of-censorship (and when to use it, if at all). The similarities are obvious. I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it [Evelyn Beatrice Hall, 1868-1956] This quote says it all - I believe it, and believe we should all practice it. It needs a lot of practice. If you practice it enough - you just may improve enough to have a positive impact on your environment. Good Luck!
