Almost Yom Kippur

Introspection is hard.

It sometimes requires a life-changing event (think crash or other screw-up that endangers or injures others).

Sometimes it requires a life-changing decision (think the 'making amends' part of a 12 step program).

And sometimes it requires a somber 'holiday' whose raison d'être is to force one to accept that even the most careful stroll through this life means occasionally stepping on the toes of others.

So, my fellow travelers, as careful as I have tried to be, I am certain that over the past year I have trod upon more than a few of your toes... I've offended some of you with my views or inappropriate humor... I've stretched your patience with my long-winded posts... and I've remained silent when some of you needed comfort or understanding.

For all these things, and any I might have missed, I apologize and ask your forgiveness.

I have no excuse. Not one.

But I promise to try to do better in the coming year, or in however much time I have left, to make amends.

And I forgive you for not posting every day. It's not like I pay you to entertain me... but I always enjoy seeing what you have to say!
