ELUL..(it's here..)




It has been proven that light travels alot faster than sound.
But it sure didn’t feel that way this shabbos.

When the Chazzan intoned..
Rosh Chodesh ELUL..Yihye B’yom....
And all the accompanying emotions..that come along with hearing these words..
And God even supplying a bit of cool autumn air for added effect...

I felt like the words were hitting my ears..
But the rest of me...?
Still far behind..
Somewhere in the beginning of August...racing to catch up..

Maybe "Rosh Chodesh Elul" is light. And you're sound.

For me its strange. one hand - Alef Ellul is my birthday, on the other a begining of the 40 days of Cheshbon Nefesh. Some will say it`s the same thing.
For me it sort of ruins the celebration.
Anyway - Chodesh Tov!

Don't rush it. Elul isn't here. YET.
ALMOST, but not yet.
