Tu B’Shevat: I Am Planting

Tu B’Shevat is the Jewish New Year of the trees. As the world begins to awaken into spring in Israel, we take the time give thanks for the beautiful beautiful world that we have been given, and to reflect on how we can preserve it for the centuries to come.

A translation of the chorus:

As my ancestors planted for me, so I will plant for my children.

Good Things

In the last few days I:

  • Gave notice at work. I’m leaving July 13! Yay!
  • Had an absolutely AMAZING series of blues and tango dances. Sometime I have to blog about the intersection of religion and bluesing…
  • Went to a delicious potluck in Brooklyn. Ate really good pie, and talked with awesome people about the politics of communal living and nonviolent communication techniques.
  • Bought two really nifty graphic novels.
  • Saw Alan Alda at a quantum physics lecture, followed by Big Gay Ice Cream.

In short, nothing but good things right now. Also, I will miss New York dreadfully when I go…
