Jared \j(a)-red\   pronounced JARE-ed.

The name Jared is a Biblical name from the Hebrew name יָרֶד (Yared) or יֶרֶד (Yered) meaning “descent.”  In the Biblical Book of Genesis, Jared was the sixth link in the ten pre-flood generations between Adam and Noah; he was the son of Mahalaleel and the father of Enoch, and lived 962 years (per Genesis 5:18).  The meaning of the name is “he who descended” (Hebrew root YRD). In the Book of Enoch it is explained that Mahalaleel named Jared because during his lifetime the angels of the Lord descended to earth. The name could also be understood as “he who shall rule” (future tense of the Hebrew root RDH, as found for example in Psalms 72:8).

Do I look fierce enough?

The Lion

If you are attacked by a lion:

Find fresh underpants,

lay on the ground quite still,

pretend you are very ill,

keep like that day after day,

perhaps the lion will go away.

“It’s the circle of life, and it moves us all, through despair and hope, through faith and love.  Till we find our place, on the path unwinding. In the circle, the circle of life! “
