Up-date

I'm working it in. Can't not. Thank God. So so so so important.
Still struggling with the early morning wrestle.

Set Adrift in Foreign Lands

Some people are set on fire by slichot (the penitential prayers leading up to Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur.) The best I usually do is slog through them. I'd be much more open to some sort of active exploration of how to improve myself and what I've done wrong in the past - almost any sort of searching. The heavy poetry and page after page of words words words doesn't do it for me. I've got to set aside time to do the real work of Tshuva, but with early morning slichot and a full schedule - how am I supposed to work it in?

Yours truly,
Searching in Jerusalem
