The Essence of Cosiness


Yasha (or ‘Coby’ or ‘Yaakov’ as he likes to be called) is very connected to mum. If I can’t get to mum, and Yasha’s not working that day, he will happily hang out with her, preparing her crackers with butter and salmon, and abundant hot teas.

He sets up his ‘little office’ next to her, and the two of them sit there in their little cocoon, drawing joy from each other.

There’s a word for this in Yiddish ‘Shefen naches’.
