Time to Get Off the Road
Tonight begins the 23rd Day of the Omer (May 5-6, 2006), which is three weeks and two days of the omer. May that part of me that is broken in Gevura in Netzach begin to heal on this day.
Shabbat is coming. It is time to get off the road. With a street name like that, could we not follow that ramp. Shabbat doesn't do a sales pitch each week. There is no advertising campaign for it. "ZZYZX" is just as good any other sign post for it.
Go, go, go, all week. It's hard to stop. I've noticed since I got a faster computer I work faster. Don't know if I get more done, though.
It takes Gevurah, strength, limit-setting, to call a halt to all this movement. Shabbat endures and repeats each week. The structure for reflection is all there. All I need is to submit.
