Back to Ordinary

The festivities of the week are over. Back to ordinary time, back to green blogskin...

 The rest of this week will involve finalizing the insurance claim on our car - our son was in an accident last week. He's fine. The car, not so much. Plus I have to pack and organize myself for my trip to NYC. I'm use to short, two or three day trips. I'm use to week long, or longer trips, if I drive. But packing to be gone 8 days when I'm -  flying, staying in a hotel, and need to be "professional"  - is going to challenge my organizational skills in order to have two carry-on bags.

Still, I am excited to be back in NYC. I don't think I've been there since 1983.

You know something? I like green and ordinary time. The drama of the High Holy Days is intoxicating but mostly we live in ordinary time, and these days that's a good place for me to be.

I've also not been in NYC since the early 1980's. Do so hope you have fun. Also grateful that it is your voice, speaking for the voiceless, giving words life and importance and new shape at the UN.

Oh dear! Happy Birthday Terri!

Wow, I'll look forward to your take on NYC. I have a brother there but have not taken an opportunity to visit for years.
