#BlogElul 5776 #ElulGram – Elul 22: End

emptysquareThere are all these moments we want they would never end, and holding onto them becomes nearly too painful as if holding tight to a rope that is been pulled by time passing by. It is as if we have never prepared enough, never strengthened our arms muscles enough and we would blame ourselves for having been negligent or not determined enough.

So, our body tells us to let go so that relief can soothe the painful feeling  and then we will deal with memories and each time the memory will surface it will have a different flavor, a new quality, because memories take a life on their own and they seem to change with our moods or maybe it is something else: maybe they really live in a different reality that we have no direct access to until we have understood something about time, about eternity, about what is and what will be.

That there is no real end, but always renewal, that the year may change its name, the place may change its appearance, something new will continue to inhabit the space, fill it with stories that never end if we care to tell them, even if it is over and over.

This year, I have committed to a daily blog in English to participate in @imabima’s project of Elul. I will dedicate my endeavor for the רפואה שלמה complete healing of   מרדכי אלעזר בן חנה מרים (Mordechai ben Chanah).
