There's lots of Passover prepping to be done: vacuuming between the couch cushions, shaking the crumbs out of the toaster oven, getting fresh dish towels for the kitchen, and of course finishing off the chametz.
These days, though, the cleansing I'm enjoying most involves shaking away the "sedentaries" (I know that's not a real word!) with crunches, treadmill time, the rowing machine, and weigh lifting, among other gym activities. Together, they're clearing my mind, cleaning up my body, and giving me a feeling of both freedom and control.
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 Monday, April 10, corresponding to 15 Nisan. If you want to play along, check out this year's #BlogExodus and #ExodusGram prompts.
