Today was powerful. Tonight was magic.
What happens when you…
Turn off tech
Silence your cell Don’t drive Pass on public transit Forget food
Ignore news Eliminate email
You… Walk well over 100 city blocks Spot skylines in new ways Engage eye contact Wig-out over wafting scents of waffles and halal food and pretzels Notice new [everything] Feel breeze on your face Navigate new pathways through Central Park Smile solely Hum happy tunes Listen to zillions of languages Overhear open-ended conversations Play with pigeons and puppies and pesky squirrels Nod knowingly to those with yarmulkes and tallis bags Sing in synagogue Recite ritualistic prayers Touch the torah Sit with special souls Engage emotionally with loved ones Set sacred intentions and specific goals on paper Meditate meaningfully en masse Gather graciously Celebrate community Feast on flavor and friends and freedom and fullness of spirit and a fresh year ahead
Shana tova and g'mar chatima tova!
