She loves being “wildly Jewish”, but not in a religious way. It is not the convictions she embraces but the culture, the aesthetics and the traditions. It is not a religion of belief for her. So is she “Jewish”. Well, for me, if she says she is, she is.
Jessica loves her grandmother who rightfully asks her: “How are the crazies?” I’d imagine that Jessica’s business can draw lots of neurotic people, but maybe some other real experimental people. “Crazy” is a term that includes “they don’t do what we do”, “they are vivaciously wild”, “they are chance takers”. It also embraces notions of delusion.
Is Jessica crazy? Watch the 5 minute video. Fortunately successful people can partition off “craziness” in their lives. And sadly, many other people can’t bring any craziness into their lives.
Question for readers: Would you call Jessica “crazy”? Would you trade some of your right beliefs for a little of her “craziness”?
PS: To head off a certain type of comment: I think astrology is hugely mistaken – even if forms of it may be ‘useful’. That is not the point of this post.
