I have a close friend who when confronted with a crisis begins to count at a deliberate pace. It helps my friend maintain equilibrium and focus on dealing with the problem at hand. The same thinking is behind an extraordinary new short film being shown at the Jewish Museum in New York City. My review of the film, "Mother Economy," can be found here. The film is, as I said in Jewish Week, well worth a trip to the Museum by itself (and the Museum is always worth a visit, I would add).
