Spring Passover Moon
And so, instead of Easter we look toward passover. It’s on two nights, this year April 10 and 11. On April 11th we will attend a community seder sponsored by Beth Evergreen at Mt. Vernon Country Club. The immersion continues and I’m learning a lot about this ancient faith and about myself. Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism, believed that Jewish culture was a gift to the world that could be shared without necessarily demanding religious conversion. I’m glad. Beth Evergreen is easily the most interesting religious community of which I’ve been a part.
My workouts have gotten back to their former lengths, roughly an hour to an hour and a half depending on the day, but the intensity, especially in the cardio, still lags. Of course, I’m only four months out from my surgery, so I’m fine with where I am.
We haven’t seen the grandkids for two weeks due to their spring break, but they’re coming up here tonight. Will be good to see them.
Joseph and Seoah got married on April 10th, a year ago. With Joseph’s deployment to Qatar they’ve missed some of their first year together, about four months. He goes again in August and will be there until December. He says this may be the last one for a while. I hope so, but with Trump finding his gunslinger role, I wonder.
Here’s the capstone of the whole experience for me, a text exchange I had with SeoAh after I learned Joseph had been sick.
Me: Glad to hear that. (he was better.) I worry about him a bit.
Very glad he’s got you to care for him and that you have him.
SeoAh: He is my lovely husband. Don’t worry about him. I will care for him.
