Wow...I almost laughing...just woke up from...ah...a nocturnal emission (the first in a LONG time). Although I know that it isn't a good thing, I don't think I've EVER been this happy to realize that it's just a dream...

Was learning with a friend last night, and he commented something about how he tries to say the right thing sometimes, but he realizes that he's not that smart (a modest statement on his part - he really is), he's just a tool for hashem.

I started laughing because only for us, frum jews, would calling yourself, or someone else, a "tool," be considered a good thing!

Thanks, Sci, both for the encouragement, and translation - and by the way, Neo (sorry, TheOne), I'm still confused sometimes by the acronyms!

Yeah - those were pretty much the last goodbyes...feels awesome! It's like I was walking around with a huge, heavy knapsack, and over the last couple of months, I've been taking items out and feelign my load getting lighter!

Then again, that sounds like a jewish joke...y'know, one israeli soldier takes out a whole platoon of arab legion soldiers, and when they everyone's impressed with his abilities, and wants to know what unit he's part of, he says, "I'm just the cook!"

OK, I know that wasn't particularly funny, but to be fair, most of those old jewish jokes aren't funny, either.

My point is, if you're the photographer, we're in good shape

You are truly a warrior.  I hope you feel better with what you did.  Just keep on going and like I say in my thread, You will win the battles and the war- with G-d's help.

Thank you for inspiring me and letting me ride along on your journey.

It's not anything to be concerned about.
Just as an alcoholic needs to avoid that first sip, a lust addict needs to avoid that first slip.Slip today? No way! ;)Fall today? No way, Jose'!

Sci - Amen! I do feel much better. And as for the inspiration and the ride - ditto, times 1,000!

Kedusha - thank you. The truth is, though, that I'm not concerned - I was just so relieved that my dream wasn't real - and that IS something worth being happy about!

When I'm walking somewhere, I base my route on the length of blocks, the lights, etc. But yesterday, I added a new criterion - I chose a route that would be less crowded, and thus have less women.

True, it's winter time, so the nisayon isn't as bad, but I figured that it certainly can't be a bad step!

That is a smart idea.  The less chance to see the better off you are.  Great idea.  I think I might have to use that one.  THANKS!!!!

Sci - it's also a halacha. Sometimes those guys have good ideas  :D ;D :D ;D

And a quote for today - "It's easier to feel sorry than it is to actually change."
