Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

Shana Tovah

Ah me, the mixed emotions of a secular Jew on the high holidays.

Still, I love me some apples and honey, and I was happy to hear the Shofar. The Jewish New Year is so much more logical than the Roman one--fall is definitely a time for reflection and endings and beginnings, whereas the dead of winter is a time for being stuck in an idiotic rut!

Let's hope this year brings some good news, in our own lives and in the life of this country.


  1. Shana Tova to you as well. I, too, am a secular Jew. I do sometimes miss the shofar and certainly the ancient melodies on Yom Kippur. Time for reflection is so very important, and that, I believe, is the greatest lesson the High Holidays offer.

    May your new year be sweet.


  2. I'm late to the party, but happy new year anyway.
