I like May 14
, always have. While Israelis celebrate independence based on the Jewish calendar, in 1948 the fifth day of Iyar fell on May 14
. It was also the date 30 years ago when I woke up in New York City for the first day of what was going to be a 30-day vacation. Plans change.
On this May 14
I also finished a little hand-written card writing project to many of you who read the
. I wanted to check in with those of you who participated as members of our community this (or last) year. I thought that during these unusual times of quarantine, isolation and fear I needed to say hello. wish you well and ask that you stay safe.
If you are reading this and are not a participating member, if you are far away or a member of another community, the message is of course the same. (I could only write to those for whom I had home addresses.) Thank you for reading this
and for sharing feedback. It's always appreciated.Please stay safe on this May 14
and every day after.
