I have a deep affection for goats, starting with the Pesah song Had Gadya and then progressing to working with actual goats at my friend's organic regenerative farm in Massachusetts, which is a fancy way of saying a medium-sized farm that grows tasty food. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that a goat gif would light up my Tevet. Thank you!

Climbing the precarious slope of winter with Mazal neither hindering nor helping. Our efforts include backsliding and getting back on our horse or goat! to continue our cyclical journey. One foot on the rocky splintering of earth: our regurgitation evaporating into space and the heavens.

As Blake famously wrote Jew Oh Jew: get your eyes off Torah and look into Celestial Space.

Gosh symbolism - A goat symbolizes magical and spiritual super powers also a symbol of greatness and excellence. Not sure why they are used for yoga - kinda kinky - and I have never had goat curry as an fyi

Comic book writing, then, seems to afford another outlet for Jewish humor, cleverness, and seriousness, ie Spiegelman's Maus. And superhero's? fantasy, wish fulfillment, who knows.The comic book is a clever way, too, of introducing adult ideas and materials for the younger readers in a form that they can appreciate.

Thanks for your informative drop. I will ignore the goat.
