Comments: Okay, world, calm down

"Today is the birthday of the world"...

AKA, it's Rosh Hashanah and I'm decidedly not ready for ten days of spiritual reflection. I think my soul might be better served by spending the time grading, but it's not really optional at this point.

Got the crown finished yesterday, and it's finally feeling like it actually worked. Now we're deep in the middle of Bar Mitzvah planning and really, really not ready for this non-optional event.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Sometimes spiritual calm comes from doing non-spiritual activities but, as you say, for this holiday, you don't really have the option.

Remind yourself that stepping outside your daily rounds-from the important and even the *immediate* tasks is sometimes the most important thing you can do.

(P.S. Crowns? I only wish.... For me, they're talking pricey implants.)
