“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”
Trees and plants always look like the people they live with, somehow.
-Zora Neale Hurston
I have Alexander Stille’s “The Force of Things: A Marriage in War and Peace, next up to read. I read Benevolence and Betrayal, by him, a few years ago, and it is a book I own and treasure.

Venting, is a way of discharging anger, and a way of emanating one’s feelings and/or thoughts.
We are asked to try to vent our feelings and thoughts regarding another person/s during the High Holy Days. We are also asked to forgive those individuals we feel have wronged us in some aspect. That doesn’t mean we have to agree with them, or side with them, but put simply, it means to forgive them.
In my opinion, in order to forgive others, we must first learn to forgive ourselves for what we feel we have done to others, or for what others think we have done to them.
I hope the New Year brings you peace and contentment in ridding yourself of harboring ill will, anger and frustration towards yourself and others.
