Powerful statement to always think about--setting goals

Thanks for another powerful statement. This is such a good time of year to focus on change, set meaningful goals, and make a difference. I keep trying, and am achieving success, one step at a time. I enjoy all of your commentaries. They all make such sense! Loved the one about parents/friends. We certainly were our parents' (z"l) best friends, as they were ours. Also so true about academics not being as important as "sachel," (common sense). Along this line,would love to "hear" something about how the inner self is more important/makes more of a difference than the outer. Too much emphasis these days is placed on looks. Good for all to think about all of this, especially at this time of year.

Drop the Mets

Become a Yankee fan, and realize that "meaningful games in Spetember" are NOT A GOAL for a winning team and attitude. It is to BE A WINNER. To win the WHOLE THING. Is it hard? Sure. You need so much to happen - most of all concentration and a good dose of faith in G-d. Do Teshuvah and stop rooting for the looser!

the New Year: Nu, so what will you do differently?

I will say this. I am probably not going to do anything differently. I spend my life writing heart and soul down the lines, listening to others, supporting those who come into my life, and causes beyond me, beyond me also in understanding why it is, after all this time, that elephants are hunted for their tusks, that animals and the environment is not being respected and treated as sacred, and why, in this eternal search for meaning, words of poetry aren't heard, spoken by those among us who really do care, who really do feel, and who are deeply sensitive to what we call the need for tikkun olam. So I will continue to do what I do, which is about love. And I will continue to pray for a better world, that we all put in what we can, in this, the All American Sport of baseball. To touch base with another, another's heart and soul, IS the soul of this game called LIFE, and to hit Homers, by so doing it always where it's AT. And should be, for us all. Shana Tova World! If not now, then when? Make it shine!

Cruise control

Cruise control...thats pretty much how I live my life......however, it's great that we are alloted a time, like Rosh Hashana, where we can actually stop & think & try to improve!
