#BlogExodus 8, 9, and 10: Deepen, Perplex, and Unite

Despite my best efforts, I have fallen woefully behind in #BlogExodus -- and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to catch up.

If only today's prompt was "Overwhelmed" or "So much to do and so little time," which, come to think of it, may be exactly how folks are feeling -- with cabinets to clean out, carpets to vacuum, floors to sweep, matzah balls to make, and brisket to prepare.

Whether it's Passover or not, why do we consistently try to cram too many things into too little time?

Having asked that question, I'm now going to let it go, and pick up tomorrow night with #BlogExodus 11: Rejoice.

Stay tuned...

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this post is one in a series marking the days of the Jewish month of Nisan leading up to Passover, which begins at sundown on Friday, April 22, corresponding to 15 Nisan. If you want to play along, check out this year's #BlogExodus and #ExodusGram prompts. Once again, this series of posts also is priming my heart, mind, and spirit to participate in Beyond Walls: Spiritual Writing at Kenyon, a six-day summer writing seminar that is an initiative of the Kenyon Institute at Kenyon College in Gambier, OH.
