Such we are commanded each week.

Stop taking from the land!

Such we are commanded each seventh year.

Why bother stopping?

Perhaps to see.

Perhaps to notice.

Perhaps to discover if we care.

Stopping draws us in.

Opens us to new life.

Deepens us to death.

Reveals to us Godness.

Brings us home.

Shanah tovah!

May you have a year rich with wonders.
