Thoughts for a Sweet New Year

The Jewish New Year falls particularly early this year ... right upon the heels of summer and the start of the school year -- it made scheduling a bit tricky but also seemed so right because regardless of our beliefs and persuasions this is traditionally a season of new beginnings for so many of us. On a personal level taking the time to reflect and to be reminded to listen to the shofar as a wake up call that each of us matters and how we move through this world matters to us and to it was particularly welcome and timely. On a side note -- the tradition of dipping apples in honey is a delicious one that anyone could try :).
