L'Shanah Tovah!

Today was gorgeous. A throw open the windows and blow all the mugginess and stuffiness out and away kind of day. I love having four seasons. But I could be swayed if this were the norm year round. It was a nice dovetail with Rosh Hashanah beginning at sundown this evening. The beginning of the Jewish New Year, the first of the High Holidays, beginning the Days of Awe and leading to Yom Kippur. There is a tradition of self examination, making amends, emptying yourself of the negative, starting afresh with the positive. The essence of the positive is following what is commonly known as The Golden Rule: Treat others as you wish to be treated; Love others as you love yourself. As Hillel is credited with saying: everything else is commentary...

Yeah - 'tis a sunny September day here too, you wouldn't believe it is autumn.

Have a great and Happy New Year. I was going to send you an email, as I know I had your address somewhere, but can't find it, so in short, thanks to you and Chusk for all the encouragement as my blog has developed, and all the thougths, words and laughs you have brought through your own

Have super day, both of you
