Random Musing Before Shabbat-Vayera 5773-Do Your Own Unpacking

I've had a lot of fun with this parasha over the years. It's rich with story, drama, intrigue, and more. I've pummeled Vayera with a Family Guy parody "He's a Family Guy?" 
( )

I've woven creative midrash in diary/journal form in "From the Journal of Lot Part II"
( )

I've punned my way through the parasha while making connections to some classic sci-fi with "Well...?"
( )

I've struggled with anachronistic and out-of-sequence text in "Whoops! Or Non-Linear Thinking"
( )

I've compared human and Divine wickedness and found us all equally guilty in "Not Even Ten"
( ) (By the way, for a beautiful and insightful operatic explanation of the true meaning our ten and minyan, I encourage you to read "Ten to the Power of One" by Stacey Robinson on her blog ( )

I've encouraged you to delve deeply into the densely packed content of this parasha and the entire Torah in "Density" (

I've wondered over the puzzle that is Sarah's lie in "Plainly Spoken" ( and I've mused about possible lessons in giving that we can glean from the story of Elisha and the Shunnamite woman in "The Price of Giving" ( )

As you read last week I'm on the move to a new home, so busy as I am unpacking and all that, I offer any and all of these previous musings for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.

Shabbat Shalom,
