Yes, here it is, New Year’s Eve, and I am faced once more with thinking:
After all, didn’t I just finish honoring the Jewish New Year, Rosh HaShanah, and all it entails—including soul-searching and resolving to improve myself in terms of personal relationships, self-control, and all things green?
And I must admit that the whirlwind of beginning yet another school year as well as the new training cycle I have undertaken with half a dozen B’nai Mitzvah students keeps me ever-mindful of the tick-tick-ticking of time and the consequences of wasting it vs using it wisely.
Still, beginning again = hope…don’t you think?
So my wish for you this night is that we may all embrace Hope:
-Hope for Peace (perfect wholeness) between peoples, between family members, within oneself
-Hope for improved use of one’s time, one’s resources, one’s creativity
-Hope for shared wisdom, shared humility, shared compassion, shared blessings
And one more thing:
Let’s stay in touch!
