I'm taking the day off from blogging today.
Something I should probably do more often.
To preserve myself a bit. To not be so "on," so intense.
It's Rosh h'Shanah. The start of Jewish Rush Week.
When millions of Jews fan out across the world with little booklets, knock on doors and stop people on the street and urge them to convert to Judaism.
No, it's the start of the Jewish New Year.
A time of both reflection and celebration.
And, if you're a freelancer, a time to write a couple dozen TV scripts.
I'm trying hard to take it easy today, however.
I'm not at either of my usual freelance stations.
In fact, while my wife, Aunt Sylvie and daughter Hannah are at Temple, Uncle Slappy and I abjured. He's trying to teach me to play pinochle for the millioneth time.
I don't have a head for cards.
And I like the shirt I'm wearing.
If I learned, I'd surely lose it to him.
Happy New Year.
