What a year 2020 has been. Today is the first evening of the Jewish New Year 5781. I was going to write about the wine I drank tonight to celebrate the New Year but then I read about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing. I feel heartbroken and scared and sad. What a life she led and all she fought for. What a legacy. If you haven’t seen the two movies out about her life, I highly recommend them. On the Basis of Sex and RBG.
Thinking about the New Year, I find it’s always time to take stock, look at the year gone by and note with pleasure all that has taken place in the past year with my child despite this crazy six month period. I am not a religious person but I do like to celebrate holidays of all kinds as a way of making markers throughout the year and remembering how sweet life can be despite all this recent sadness.
