Tonight is PURIM

Only official Esther Holiday Purim One of Those Stories

Bad Guys DEFEATED  We Wear Costumes

I will be dressed as Esther Cohen  adding some Sara Cohen earrings

big gold Purim hoops we should all have our own holidays.  Maybe every day.

Tonight, we read The Story of Esther what happened then what happens now tonight

wear our own costumes,  knowing  those who are bad will be defeated if we can persist,

we can feed one another, that we can eat cookies

that we can every single day tell stories, and sing.


Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. I am, someone said, one of those
    hemi-demi-semi-and fake Jews,
    converted by a Reform rabbi
    who required nothing, nothing of me.
    Yet I could never be anything else.
    I am still, 68 years later, making
    Hamantashen. I have just taken them
    out of the oven, enough for
    Kerrie and Tom, Joanie and Robert,
    and my Jewish neighbor upstairs.
    Is that Jewish enough?

  2. Wish I was there to celebrate Purim with you! I love the story of Esther. It’s rich! Have fun reading the Book/ Scroll of Esther, eating those cookies, and wearing those gold rings. And God bless all our Uncle Mordecai’s and tough cool Queen Vashti’s of the world that shake the status-quo up and risks their lives for others. Your momma named you right. In joy enjoy, Esther.

  3. Keep writing, dear Queen Esther!!

    Reading your poems is like wearing Purim costumes and being the winners!!!

    Thank you!!!!!!!
