There were two boats sailing in the bay. A stiff wind swept into the area blowing in the direction of the rocks and away from the harbor. The pilot of one of the boats was taken closer and closer to the rocks, its pilot having great difficulty controlling his course as the wind blew him closer and closer to disaster. Yet the pilot of the other boat adjusted his sails and set his course against the wind toward the safe harbor, for he knew that a good sailor can use the wind and sail against it. The minutes went by as one boat approached its end on the rocks and the other approached the safe harbor…
A total solar eclipse streaked across the United States Monday, Aug. 21. In its 70-mile-wide path, people saw the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into darkness, with trails of light streaming through the sky around the silhouette of the moon.
Millions of people witnessed the historic spectacle as the eclipse traveled a path from Oregon to South Carolina. Chabad centers along its route hosted informative and inspirational programs to provide a Jewish perspective on the event.

I’m always obsessed with something related to the Royals. I had no idea from where this idea came from. Probably, it came from children stories books which I read when I was little which always telling stories about happy ending stories, where the prince and princes living happily ever after eventually. The stories were vary, from land of Europe such as the stories of Snow White and Prince Florian in Snow Whites and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Prince ‘Charming’ Henry, Prince Adam in Beauty and the Beast. From the Middle East, I admired Princes Jasmine and Aladdin. And there was Mulan from China. Oh, I should mention Indonesian radio drama that I always listened during in my childhood, Saur Sepuh, which was telling stories of Madangkara Kingdom with Brama Kumbara as its king. Yeah, I was living in fairy tales. [ ]
