Blog Elul: Begin
These past few weeks have been filled with beginnings. A new city. A new place. living with new people. Having consistent internet that doesn't cut out every five minutes. New teachers. New hilly area and therefore, new calf muscles. Each year at Rosh Hashanah, we get the opportunity to begin again. To have our slates wiped clean. To start anew. But that new beginning is coming a little bit late this year because I'm already through with orientation. However, I am beginning to feel comfortable here. I have incredible friends and a routine. It's important to spend some time thinking about the past even during new beginnings. The slate can never fully be wiped clean. Our pasts inform our future. So we'd better be ready.
