And his mother, Chana the Long, was the center of his world who instilled in him a love of the sweetness and beauty of daily life—a loving kindness, what Abraham Heschel called a life-feeling. Being alive was a blessing—the air he breathed, the food on our table, the sky and trees, most of all, his wife and children, his family. We were his wealth.

She had a big family living in different little towns, maybe 25 miles away, some lived in towns, some lived in villages, where she was born, so she’ll take us, maybe two or three weeks, and we’d go visit one and stay a couple of days, and then another, and then come back here.
