OK, so the stock market went into the toilet today and lots of people lost a ton of money. Meanwhile, Congress fiddles as Rome burns.
But most of us have our health and are surrounded by loved ones. OK, you might have the good fortune of knowing at least one person who tolerates your eccentricities. But we have come through another year and are still inhaling and exhaling.
Even in the worst of times there is still beauty to be found in music, streams and a myriad of little momentary things that make our lives worth living.
With that I wish you, Jewish or not, a Happy Rosh Hashanah.
