Happy New Year! Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur 5781!

During the month leading up to Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur, I think about what has happened in the year that is ending. As I have this chance to reflect on what went well and what I want in the new year, I set goals. During the pandemic, I have had to pivot and write more about books as I have not been traveling.

What will you focus on? Cantor Emma from Stephen Wise Temple asked us:

What are the things we want to let go of from this past year? Where were we successful, our best selves? Where did we fall short? Who do we want to reconnect with or make amends to? What have we learned from the unique challenges during this pandemic? What are our hopes, dreams and goals for 5781 (2020-2021)?

At this time of year we say: “G’mar Hatima Tova” which means may you be inscribed into the Book of Life with a good seal. It is not too late to change the decree, listen to the shofar and be called to attention, to worship, to community, to something new! What will you commit to?

Thank you to THRIVE GLOBAL for publishing my articles about books:

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, I have been in Los Angeles since March 9, 2020. That is 204 days. I have been focused on what can I do and have been publishing new voices on my site! Learn about these projects here.

During COVID19, I have been invited on many podcasts! You can listen to them on my new Podcast page.

Thank you to Collin Mitchell for inviting me on Sessions by Monster Chat

Thank you to Jordan Scheltgen from Cave Social for inviting me on Mind Your Marketing Podcast.

Enjoy my video of the waves at Santa Monica Beach. I filmed with my new LGV60ThinQ phone. I am grateful that the beaches in Los Angeles are open and I am able to walk and listen to the ocean. One day I saw dolphins!
