Next year in Jerusalem, y'all
It's Good Friday and at sundown, Passover begins. The sacred dramas that describe the springtime theme of death/rebirth are unfolding! Some years I observe Easter as I did last year when I attended a service in Polish with a Polish friend. Whoa. That was an eye opener! Some years I attend a Seder, take in the seasonal theme through the story of the exodus.
This year I'm working on Easter, also all day today. I will focus on the death of spasmed muscles and rebirth of relaxation as I knead, smooth and stretch the bodies of my clients.
It's not the worst way to observe the holiday weekend, is it? Happy whatever you celebrate, and happy weekend to those who celebrate neither of these holidays.
May we put down our burdens, leave behind our enslavements, may it be so! Shalom.
