it is that time of year again when jews atone for sins committed during the past year.
i dont do this in synogogue… i do it at home.
and at this point i’m not sure about the whole gd thing.
i believe in something. and then i don’t. so conflicted. i remember a time when i wasn’t. and i liked the feeling of having faith. and i envy those who do have a strong faith in gd.
i’m just not one of those people today.
regardless of whether or not i am saying sorry to gd, i like the idea of spending some time thinking about (confronting!) how i’ve behaved this past year.
and i like the idea of feeling like i’ve got a clean slate afterward. even if the slate doesn’t stay clean for very long.
unlike (more) religious jews, i don’t do a complete fast- i drink one cup of coffee today. (according to jewish law, i am supposed to fast till sundown).
if you are fasting and atoning today, may it be quick and easy for you.
