I arrived back in Portland a day and a half ago. It’s among the last days of March. It snowed this morning. The snow didn’t seem to stick, but was a little bit odd, nonetheless.
The rabbinical convention was fabulous, and therefore left me a little bit short of sleep. It was great to connect with old friends, make some new friends and generally catch up with colleagues, mentors, teachers and friends. It was fascinating to see some of the directions we’re all heading in. There was some great learning, some thought-provoking sessions and some playful fun. We prayed together, and it was lovely and spiritual, and I even got a new melody out of it.
It is great to be home, however, and I’m looking forward to having most of this weekend off. Sleep is very high on my priority list.
