Happy new year


Last night was the start of Rosh Hashanah. 

It is a solemn holiday.  A time of reflection.

The time to ask forgiveness for a year’s worth of sins. 

The time that your fate for the upcoming year is said to be decided – which, by the way, scared me to death as a child.  I kept looking up at that sky.  Hoping I would be added to “the book of life.”

The time to celebrate with apples and honey.

La Shonah Tova.

  1. Apples and honey? This is sneaky food taunting, isn’t it?

    Hope you had a great (and well behaved) Rosh Hashanah.
