G'mar Chasima Tova!

This is too good. I'm not going to detract from it by sticking in my two cents.

All RISE!

This is a sweet message for a sweet New Year. There are many paradoxes in life and Rosh Hashonah is one.
Why? I do think we ought to be thinking all year round and asking forgiveness before the "Head" of the year.
And often, I am wondering about the deeper paradox, about being written into another year because this isn't just about being a good, compassionate person. Being written into the BOOK says something about script and scripted. Perhaps the more Sufi, more Kabalistic notion, that we are all aspects of the divine hold here, and what we divine, about our lives, at the deepest level has to do with creation itself and being an integral part of this weave. There are layers here. I am meely posing the question because forgiveness is such a deep topic, perhaps one of the most profound of all topics, and surely the essence of "the journey". Maybe we are all held accountable but then, I do think God is also accountable to us all. And for this, this Yom Kippur, I forgive God, because I surely love this creation and reverence all.
