Trying to Come Back ...

Rabbis are just people ... we develop new interests, and try new things.  We become disappointed by our lack of effort.  We start projects and we step away from them ... just like anyone else.  I realized recently that I've been away from this blog for a long time, and considered whether or not to start fresh, or to simply begin again.

As the sun set tonight, I decided it was time to begin again as Jews everywhere enter the month of Elul, the month before the Jewish New Year.  I decided that I cannot give up on something that I previously committed myself to and, while blogging isn't necessarily something that makes or breaks my life, it is a platform to share my outlook on this world.  It was sometimes therapeutic.  It was sometimes stress-relieving.  It was sometimes a safe place to share, in an almost anonymous, yet public, space.  

I think it is time to figure out again what my little space in a far away corner of the Internet can be.  Let's find out what happens.  : )
