Happy anniversary to me! Wow. When I wrote this first post on January 29, 2005, I never imagined I'd last five years, let alone 900 posts. My life isn't very different than it was back then—still waiting for the guy to call, still trying to pay the bills—but my voice is, in terms of writing as well as chanting. I'm slowing finding the courage to say and sing in new, more honest ways, and the seeds of that confidence began here, with some tentative words and no idea where they'd lead. And with the help of a small but steady bunch of readers who (much to my shock) actually want to hear what I have to say. Thank you, and (assuming the Internet still exists) onward to the next five.
And Shabbat Shalom!
