It was back to work today – in time to take the test for credit for the MEIR course (nothing like missing all of yesterday’s lectures). The lecturers for the course were good (defined as knowledgeable, entertaining and willing to give me a certificate based on the few hours that I attended along with passing the exam. Lets get real, the course is required and it would be really painful to have to do it again). Especially since not much has changed on the planning and occ med front in years, lots of years.
I am finished with this –
placed in the middle of the chaos that is my studio table to give me encouragement. It is a bit more pink than I originally had thought.
Other than that, the planning meeting for Yom Kippur that we held after services and Oneg tonight has us pretty well organized for next Friday/Saturday. We have patched together the Torah readings, but won’t be using the actual scroll – since reading without vowels (and with the right melody) is beyond all of us.
Meanwhile, please think about those deployed from their families – it is a hard time of year.
