    I’ve being writing a lot lately as a way of helpng myself through deep life hardships.
    It is helpfull indeed. Although I sometimes feel lost and treading water and the need of hearing some kind of educated feedback both from the literary point of view as from the jewish content and direction I seek to mine in myself.
    I harbor a variety of “hats” according to my inner needs of expression and the environmenal demands.
    I can use guidance in space and time managment or simply said organizational skills.
    Are you in a position to offer help/guidance or could reccomend someone who would be?
    Thanks for your time and consideration,
    Rivka Ozersky
