About meI am a retired Insurance Broker (in my 88th year). I moved from L.I. New York to Southern Colorado. Tried to retire, but found I could not remain inactive, so I worked as salesperson in a bookstore (3 years). Was offered a job as Information Assistant at The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, worked in their bookstore for 3 years, and the left to work for 2 years as Library Assistant at a local state college. I left when the state budget could no longer provide the financing.I am currently living at The Colorado State Veteran's Center at Homelake, Co .

About my libraryMy library is quite diversified. For the most part, it has been accumulated over a 60 year period. I would estimate that it contains between 2 and 3 thousand volumes. I have a large number Jewish and Christian books and am currently researching the Kabbalah (Zohar) and other aspects of Spiritual Mysticism.
I recently moved to the Veterans Center at Homelake, Co. I found it necessary to cull my library and ended donating most of my books (approximately 3000) to the Adam State College Library. I miss the books, but feel that they will be well used.

Hello Richard, and shana tova.
There is a very nice introductory work on Jewish Mysticism by Adin Steinsaltz, The Thirteen Petalled Rose, which I highly recommend (Kurzweil is his student and undoubtedly cites that book). For a very interesting--really engrossing--novelistic treatment of kabbalistic themes, try Mitch Chefitz's first novel--I think it is called The Seventh Telling. Danny Matt has a nice short collection from the Zohar, in addition to a huge translation project currently under way. For much heavier academic scholarly stuff (beyond Scholem and Idel), I really like the work of Eliot Wolfson, a 40ish American, but it is very heavy going.
May this be a healthy and sweet year for you, Alan
