Who is Colloquially Speaking?

My name is Bracha.

When I was little, I hated my name.

Bracha means blessing in Hebrew.

I didn’t feel like a blessing to anyone.

Growing up was hard…it was painful and challenging and hurt more than it should have.

But it taught me who I am and how to be.

I am Bracha.

I am an artist and a writer.

I am a partner and a wife.

I am a mother and a friend.

I am a sister and a daughter and a part of a broken family.

I am whole.

I am neither blessing nor curse.

I am here and I have some things to say.

I hope that you will listen.

  1. Hi CS,
    So glad to have found your blog. You write very well and have some pretty deep insights. Will peruse more later. Just wanted to say Hi and that I’m excited cuz I don’t see too many blogs of married women writers (guess, we’re too busy…)


  2. “I am an analytical woman who tries to live in the real world and not get caught up in her musings” Haha. You sound a lot like me. I wish I could follow you on here through Tumblr.


  3. I came across this blog last night, and have read through everything you’ve posted.

    I am in awe of the person you are. Your children are so lucky to have a mother as awe inspiring as you.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
