My previous post was almost a year ago, at the end of Yom Kippur. Here I am in the same spot, just breaking the fast and blogging.
I had a unique experience during these high holidays: I did not need the services very much. I have been on my own path of taking stock of my life, reflecting, and figuring out where I am in life. This seemed to satisfy my soul's need for reflection, as I found no satisfaction sitting in services during these holidays so far.
It's funny how experiences can change from year to year; I wondered if this is what many other Jews experience - the ebb and flow of services feeding some part of them and then not.
In spite of this, the holidays themselves have been meaningful so far...in particular, visiting the mikeveh before RH was fantastic.
Looking forward to Sukkot. Shavua Tov, everyone.
