I was Sacramento Bound. Change of plans. So instead I was Fresno Bound. Change of plans. Then I had to decide whether to go to Malibu or Woodland Hills.
I ended up going to Torrance.
After much metaphorical traveling and actual non-traveling (for once), today the Tygrrrr Express is actually home in Los Angeles.
Tonight begins the holy holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
I will be taking Saturday off with a pre-written column, and visiting sick patients in the hospital.
The holiday ends Sunday night, which means that my Week 2 NFL Recap will be delayed.
Unlike many, I am more than aware that the blogosphere will do just fine without me this weekend.
I am not somebody who uses the internet to discuss private business. I prefer covering the events of others. Any time I am the focus, this is with much reluctance.
As for my thoughts on this holiday, allow me to be useless as a blogger and keep those private as well.
I normally quote a non-Jewish individual on this holiday.
As John Cougar Mellencamp said, “Time to settle with my neighbor. Time to question my own behavior.”
I have a long way to go before I become the man I want to be. I may never get there.
Even more troubling is that on many days I have no desire to even make the sacrifices required to get there.
I will do what I will do, and that is that.
I wish all the Jews of the world a peaceful Rosh Hashanah.
To everyone else, I wish you solace, tranquility, and peace.
