As we enter into Rosh Hashana and the beginning of the Jewish New Year - I know only one thing for certain. And that one thing is that I know nothing at all.
Perhaps the simple acceptance of that knowledge comes with age and life experience.
Perhaps it comes from an understanding that 'this' is all we have.
'This' relationship. 'This' time. 'This' place. 'This' moment.
We look for reason. We look for meaning.
We look for answers to questions that have no real answers.
We look for truth.
The path that lies ahead...has not yet revealed itself. What has happened...has happened. There's no turning back.
Today - I'm here. In the magic of the morning light and fog and early season frost. I'm alive and well and breathing.
Perhaps - when I stop to truly think about it - that's the only one thing I do need to know.
And that - I know for certain.

To all those who are celebrating - L'Shana Tovah. May it be a sweet new year - filled with peace and light.
