It’s not anyone who could convince me to write a poem on the topic of a word beyond words; a creation beyond creation, poetry beyond poetry. Talk about intimidating! But Ketzirah and her extraordinary Eht/Aht deck…the depth of her wisdom and heart…how could I not try?
To say that I am incredibly honored to have anything to do with this creation — or Kohenet Ketizrah Lesser herself, would be an understatement. I am a huge fan of this woman, what she is, who she is, what she creates, how she moves through this world. She is a true mystic and so darn wise and kind.
You really owe it to yourself to take a dive into the world of Devotaj, Eht/Aht and all things Ketzirah. Her learning, creations and articulation on a great many Jewish topics are deeply inspiring and downright thrilling.
I feel confident and grateful that my initial involvement in Kohenet was, in no small part a way to bring her, at long last, into my life. (Turns out Divinity had tried before…we worked at the same theatre company yearsssss ago! My contract ended just as hers started…)
