Miriam's Song
By Debbie Friedman

And the women dancing with their timbrels
Followed Miriam as she sang her song
Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted.
Miriam and the women danced and danced
the whole night long.

And Miriam was a weaver of unique variety.
The tapestry she wove was one which sang our history.
With every thread and every strand she crafted her delight.
A woman touched with spirit, she dances toward the light.

As Miriam stood upon the shores and gazed across the sea,
The wonder of this miracle she soon came to believe.
Whoever thought the sea would part with an outstretched hand,
And we would pass to freedom, and march to the promised land.

And Miriam the Prophet took her timbrel in her hand,
And all the women followed her just as she had planned.
And Miriam raised her voice with song. She sang with praise and might,
We've just lived through a miracle, we're going to dance tonight.

And the women dancing with their timbrels
Followed Miriam as she sang her song
Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted.
Miriam and the women danced and danced
the whole night long.

Quickie as the Orioles game just ended in extra innings (successfully, after trying to blow it in the 9th!) and I was distracted with Mueller Report commentary and avoiding Endgame spoilers in headlines about the terrible leaks of Endgame spoilers. Most of my day was unexciting, apart from getting invited to a 10:30 a.m. EX raid at the last minute at the Gifford Pinchot Forestry Building and catching a shiny Latios at a just-before-dinner raid. Daisy appears to be feeling better; she ate plenty!

Before the Orioles game, we watched this week's Cloak and Dagger, in which a bunch of people judged Tandy unfairly, and The Orville, which I swear was based on a Voyager fan fiction in which there were two Janeways, one who was the captain and one who was not. (Okay, that fanfic was based on the TNG double-Riker transporter accident episode, but there was more sex in the fic and The Orville than TNG.) From the C&O Canal last weekend, here are some of the animals we saw (no snakes)!
