A clockwork smartness.

“It’s always good to remember where you come from and celebrate it. To remember where you come from is part of where you’re going.” Anthony Burgess

That’s Answers.com‘s quote for today and, at the moment, pertinent for me. Yesterday we attended a Shabbat meal that spurred a conversation – like most conversations these days – about aliyah, motives, loyalty, self-respect… I didn’t always have the opinion or feeling that it was important to embrace your roots (as it used to be evident here) but I’ve come to accept it – and celebrate it – more and more. The stress of denying where you come from occurs throughout cultures, ages, religions… And I think it can be some of the most destructive stress.

With everything else I have going on, there’s just no time or space for that.
