- hi all, it's always a great pleasure to write for this group, so here
is a little suggestion for a great book and his magic author chaim
potok. if you have never red this please do it 'cause he's simply
magic. his last book is "in the beginning" (in italian "in principio")
and i'll recomend you to read it because he manages to speak about
important feelings and emotions with simple words and i assure you
that you couldn't live the book till you get the end.
potok is a rabbi and he lives in usa and as every good rabbi he is a
good introspective and he can read easily some of the great questions
of our life. he always talk about children and theire lives in the
ortodox jewish community in new york, and you will fall in love with
his caracther, i'm sure about this. read also "my name is asher lev"
or "the gift of asher lev"....but every tittle is o.k.
have a nice week end,
p.s. per gli italiani che leggeranno questo messaggio, tutti i libri
di potok sono editi da garzanti e vi consiglio di iniziare
con "l'arpa di davita" ve ne innamorerete:-))))

about true healing in her native country;
and Starhawk, The fifth Sacred Thing, about a society 50 years from
now in the USA, where women have more power and magic and where after
an all disruptive war, a new society has developed. Trouble in
paradise when they discover that there is a whole different world in
the former cities of LA and San Francisco. This is a book about
believing in your own special magic, your own powers and going after
Have fun reading magical words!
