Being a Mensch



This morning I received email from a friend in Israel. I’ve mentioned her before, this bright, warm spirit hoping for a Steinbeck Foundation fellowship. And I dubbed her fittingly as a mensch, a Yiddish term labeling a person as one of integrity and honor.

She replied in the most delightful way, saying it felt like being knighted. In addition, Grace wrote, “I dub you, Darla of the Writingtales a mensch of the first order.”

I Feel Like I've Been Awarded a Gold Star!

How’s that for a great way to start the day?
