#BlogElul: Day Zero

For many of us, myself included, last year was a lot. Too much, in fact. Too much to keep up with. Too much to process. Too much to add one more thing.

And so #BlogElul, as much as I enjoy the challenge, was jettisoned as so many other things were.

This morning, As Rosh Chodesh davening began, it occurred to me that I might have the mental and emotional space to give it a try again. And so here we are. B’lie Neder (without a voy) I am going to give it a shot.

To do the work of considering the past year with all of it’s complexity as well as my part in it.

To look forward to the coming year and try to envision the improvements in myself I think possible, and the impact on the world around me if I succeed.

Some folks might protest, “But this is a tech blog!”.

No, this is a ME blog. I bring my whole self to my work, and likewise I bring my whole self here. There’s plenty of tech. Knowing how things have gone in the past, I’m willing to bet there will be tech tidbits in many of the daily posts over the coming month, too.
