Dear ones,
It will soon be Sukkot,  and I will resume writing in two days.
A willing, kind and helpful young man, student of Netanel's, helped me set up the sukkah, and a friend of his came last minute and did those things requiring a taller person.  I am MOST grateful.
This is my favorite holiday, reminding us of impermanence and the advantages of travelling lightly through this world, de-lighted and unencumbered.
Blessings, blessings, blessings.
