I forgot that tonight begins Rosh Hashanah, followed by a second day on the 1st, the Feast of St. Francis on the 4th, Yom Kippur next week and Sukkot the week after.
I’m not formally Jewish, but I follow out the Jewish holidays (beside the Catholic ones) all year all of my life. For that matter, I am avoiding my rage and anger on the meatless burger at fast foods locations almost everywhere for the month of October, but I will return to it from time to time.
Let the Happy Holidays begin everyone. If spring time sees me returned finally without more mention of it and I doubt it — I will surely begin my lament of anguish on it again. (Thanks.)
