No Kings

Back at the beginning of January, I started Daf Yomi, a 7.5-year process of reading the Talmud. I’ve been posting about it on my private Facebook page, but decided to also add things here.

This post was originally written on 15 January 2020.

Daf Yomi day 11 (sorry, all my non-Daf Yomi followers). I don’t have a lot to say. It’s been a long day, and it’s not over. So, stray thoughts:

1. I like the idea that at night we express our faith in the future.
2. I hate the idea of kings. I like the idea that there is a king whose kingship consists of justice.

Not sure I can explain either impulse, really.
