Uncharacteristically early

I am dashing this off before going upstairs to pack.
As usually happens the day before travel, or before the arrival of company to stay, or a major religious holiday: a surprise.  This time, it was the clogging of the garbage disposal, backing up into the sink, which I did not succeed in  curing myself.  So I did indeed need to call a plumber.  (Just what I needed today.)

But everything else is well, and now I am heading upstairs to pack lightly (G-d willing) for two weeks.
I will try to write tomorrow night, if I can.  In any case, I hope to return to these pages on Tuesday or Wednesday night.  

I wish us all a holiday of revelation, recalibration, and rededication to the deepest intent of our hearts.

Good night.
