READER
“Dayenu” is the catchy traditional Passover song, over a thousand years old, that’s part of the long Passover Seder. “Dayenu” means, “it would have been enough.”  A “remix” is a reinterpretation of a pre-existing song. This is a Dayenu Remix story.
(rapping)
If I could stay in bed trapped in the morning’s sweet dream before jolting awake to check my nerve-wracking email, that would be enough.  

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could get to the sink without taking inventory of my wrinkles in the magnifying mirror, that would be enough.

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could spend the best part of the day on meaningful goals and the last exhausted hours on mindless minutia, and not the other way around, that would be enough.

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could love my adoring, absent-minded soul-mate without keeping score of who last emptied the dishwasher, took out the trash and left the back door unlocked again, that would be enough.  

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could fully love my family without replaying tired scripts, silently stewing over their imagined wrongs and expecting them to be like people they are not, meaning like me,  that would be enough.

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could meet you and see you and listen to you as if you were a dazzling, inspiring soul made in the image of G_d, without fearing you or judging you, that would be enough.

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could remember that I can’t afford to waste one minute in this short life, that would be enough.

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could know in my bones that I am blessed with limitless freedom and am a slave only to my own puny thinking, that would be enough.

ALL
Dayenu!

READER
If I could take a page from the Torah that freedom is scary but slavery is deadly, especially self-slavery and letting go will lead to the promised land, and that G_d designed us to bow only to limitless compassion, eternal truth and to our internal truth…that would be way more than enough.  Dayenu!

ALL
(ALL sing Dayenu)
Day-Day-einu, Day-Day-einu, Day-Day-einu, Dayeinu, Dayeinu (Dayeinu)!
Day-Day-einu, Day-Day-einu, Day-Day-einu, Dayeinu, Dayeinu!
