I had the best of intentions when I started this blog earlier in the year. Really.
I haven't written as frequently as I might have liked; I won't make excuses as to why.
But the thing about intentions, as Elul reminds us, is that when we go astray, when we fail to make good on our best intentions, we needn't throw in the towel. We have opportunities to make teshuvah, to reexamine our intentions and look for new avenues that will allow us to bring them to fruition.
I can't promise that I'll be any better at this blogging stuff in the year ahead.
But at least I get to try.
