Selflessness vs. Selfness

Recently I posted several poems by poetess Sorah Rosenblatt who passed away earlier this year, and was so happy to see many of you loved these poems too.

Reading these poems I felt a real connection with her, I could so relate to her experiences as a mother, as a baalat teshuva, as a person who tries day by day (sometimes with more success, and sometimes with less) to connect with Hashem in her life.
