Anyone? Bueller, anyone?

Last night I needed to talk to someone, I could not fall asleep because an issue that I thought was dead popped into my head and I started obsessing.

Having no other adult in the house, I picked up my handy iphone and started perusing my contacts list.  I literally called or messaged close to 20 friends and family, both here in Israel and abroad, before one of my friends answered.  She, in the middle of her workday, could not spend all that much time on the phone with me, and had not much to add in any case other than, "Stop obsessing!"

This time of the year, from Rosh HaShanah to Yom Kippur, we are supposed to connect to our Inner Voice, converse with G-d and put in our list of requests.  Perhaps not a single person was available to force me to have that discussion with a Higher Power, or perhaps it simply made me feel lonely.

A glass of wine can sometimes be ok company I find.
