Gather the Broken Omer Blog

8 Apr

COUNTING THE OMER. fifty days, fifty fragments: one a day, one solid journey.

to gather

1 – to assemble, collate, collect, draw together

2 – to understand, infer

3 – to summon up (a mental or physical attribute such as one’s thoughts or strength)

...and still broken.

broken hearts, broken dreams, broken promises. the bits and pieces that no longer make sense, work or fit. it is our whispered hope that by exploring the fragments, and bringing together the discarded parts, that creativity and new life can begin. gather the broken is a shared omer counting 5772, drawings from Jacqueline Nicholls, commentary from Amichai Lau Lavie.

count begins April 8th 2012
