You Can Return

Throughout the ten Days of Awe, imagine returning to the person you want most to be.

Decide that no matter what has happened last year, you are able to be your true authentic self.

No hiding, no contradictions, no self-imposed hermitage. No pessimism. No judgments.

Anyone can start anew. Anyone can dip an apple into honey and taste the sweetness of a new relationship, a new work project, a new attitude.

The promise of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur calls us to optimism and hope, acceptance and clarity of purpose.

I begin this year with the power of study and the joys of learning in community.
