From the Sublime to Whatever This Is

Image: I’m glad that knitting requires no electricity! A knitting project in progress.

I hope that each of you had a meaningful Day of Atonement. Services at Temple Sinai were beautiful today, and I am full of post-Yom-Kippur energy.

I am writing to explain that things are a little strange in San Leandro tonight. We have been warned about a possible power shutoff, because high winds are predicted.

At the moment there is almost no wind and two shutoff times have passed by. In short, I have no idea what is happening. My desktop computer is unplugged to keep it safe from surges, and I’m posting this from my phone.

I’m unsure when I shall post again.

Whatever happens, get ready for Sukkot. If you have a sukkah, put it up. If you want to learn about Sukkot, this blog has a search function. I will be back soon, I hope.

L’shana tovah umetukah! To a good and sweet year!
