195. More to come

It's going to take me some time to write about this Yom Kippur. (Although I don't expect I'll need to contemplate it for a year, like the last one.) And just when you think the holidays have wound down, here they come again: Sukkot, starting tomorrow night, and then Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, as well as my favorite, Hoshana Rabbah, when I get to release my tensions by beating that poor lulav to a pulp against the floor. This also means, since they all happen to fall in the middle of the week, that I'll be spending my remaining time over the next ten days trying to stay sane while cramming five days of work into three.

So it may be awhile before I can gather my thoughts about last Thursday. I don't think I've ever experienced the day more fully, or felt less resolution and more confusion at the end--but this is good. That's how it's supposed to be. If you believe all your problems have been solved by that last shofar blast, you're not really human.

More to come shortly. Meanwhile, happy Sukkot!
