Ironically, the longer I spend here in the world, the longer is the list of things I don’t understand. Among the things that continually baffle me – in no particular order – are:
- Faces endlessly glued to screens
- Politics and politicians
- The stock market
- Tattoo sleeves
- The youth orientation of our culture
- The joy of consumerism
- Outright nastiness
- Slapstick comedy (I don’t find it amusing)
- And the list goes on…
All the more reason, I guess, to spend this month working to explore and understand my own soul – and exactly what makes it tick.
Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
