(The Jewish year "begins" with Rosh Hashana, and the numbering of the years is counted from Rosh Hashana. But the calendar is actually calibrated from Passover, in the month of Nisan. Passover always falls on the first full moon after the northern spring equinox.)
I've been posting here for ten years (anniversary was April 8) and I'm ten years older than I was then. But I also feel I've got a lot more clarity, focus, and direction.
Now that I'm back in Portland, I won't be able to see Sophie as often, but I will be able to make the most of the time I do get to spend with her. And I'll be able to move forward with other things: education, hobbies, career, relationships, creativity.
Anyway, short post for today, only because I've still got lots of stuff to do before the seder tonight.
