Yom Kippur 5770

I haven't posted the past 10 days, what with the pressures and deadlines and the holidays and the other standard excuses.

There were some proposed postings under contemplation, but I had some reservations as to whether they should be posted. As matters developed, it is better that they were not posted, at least during the past 10 days. One or more of those postings may or may not go up (with relevant updates and redactions, of course) at some point in the future, but for now, I shall hold my fire. Some things just aren't meant to be made public too early.

Tonight is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, for the year 5770 of the Hebrew Calendar. I am carbo-loading for the fast, attending to some other holiday preparations for Sukkot, doing some legal research, grading a few papers, and working on possible rendezvous with professional colleagues, and also a cousin's club reunion on my wife's side of the family.

To all who sincerely seek my forgiveness as Yom Kippur approaches, I give you my mechilah, and likewise, I ask all I may have wronged during the past year for mechilah.

Everyone, have an easy fast, and may you be sealed in the G-d's book for a good, happy, healthy and prosperous year!
