Yesterday evening, Marash Girl opened a Chinese Fortune Cookie which gave her the following message:
"A good memory is fine, but the ability to forget is the one true test of greatness. . ." By that definition, Marash Girl, and many of the rest of us, have passed the one true test of greatness . . . But then, what is it that we are willing to forget? Yosef Hahim Yerushalmi (Zakhor) or Alan Wolfe (The Blessings of Exile) may want to weigh in on that thought . . .
P.S. The other side of the message instructed Marash Girl how to say "orange" in Chinese! Now there was a coincidence, since orange is Marash Girl's favorite color!
