In mundane terms, this means I will be absent from the internet between now and Saturday night, as per usual.
In more spiritual terms: we are in the last few hours of the old year, and about to enter the new. This past month, the month of Elul, is supposed to be about beginning the spiritual and personal self-evaluation that reaches its peak over the next ten days. I haven't been able to get into the right frame of mind yet this year, and as the song goes, that's a fault of mine that I'm working on.
Let the year and its curses conclude, we say in the liturgy; and let the year and its blessings begin.
Amen, amen, amen.
