From the Earth Into the Fire - Reclamation... Redemption?
Thinking about the metaphor of creating Judaica out of clay. Clay not just the surface for the message, the prayer or whatever. The clay "body", adamah. Reclaiming the Jewish adamah, creating from that the vessels of ritual, of historical reenactment, then cleansing and strengthening the clay through fire. It means something to me. Like music. Like prayer...avodah.
