Who is the Enigma?

"When we think with all our mind, with all our heart, with all our soul; when we become aware of the fact that the self cannot stand on its own, we realise that the most subtle explanations are splendid enigmas, that God is more plausible than our own selves, that it is not God who is an enigma but we."
- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
from Man is Not Alone, 1951


The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
