It's almost pesach, which means it's almost time to count the omer! I'm probably gonna be doing this shit again: chabad.org/library/article_cdo

Omer 1: Chesed of Chesed, lovingkindness within lovingkindness 

chabad.org/library/article_cdo
Amusingly enough, I've been asking myself these questions lately from a polyamory perspective as my number of partners grows, but other kinds of love are maybe more relevant here.

I worry about balancing love-within-love as love for others, with space for loving myself. I used to chase chesed and crave it and approach it with familiarity, but these days I am more tentative. Not sure if it's an improvement.

@Mxmatched been using NeoHasid's app for quite a while. It used to be free but I see it's got a charge now. I always keep an old siddur on the desk too, but I do love having the cell phone remind me!

@Digital_pigeon Ooh good idea. I haven't downloaded an app for it but I don't want to forget.

@Mxmatched the Android app isn't working as well as the iPhone one did in years past for me. Could be my phone has another alarm app superceding it though. Chag Sameach!

@Digital_pigeon i downloaded the iphone one and apparently you have to go into the settings screen and do some extra wrangling to get it set up with notifications. Maybe it's the same on android?

@Mxmatched i was having issues with a digital signal decoder for ham radio stuff too, international space station broadcasts at 145.825Mhz if you're in to that, got my 3rd party alarm off and whamo back in business. Thanks for checking in on the iPhone app!
