Shalom aleichem and L’shanah tovah
Today is the start of the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, and I had a chance to attend a service tonight with a good friend. A great sermon which I will post here later spoke of new beginnings, taking care of life. I learned a little about the Book of Life and Book of the Dead. And even though I was totally lost I felt so included. Could not for the life of me even with the words in front of me keep up with the songs yet they felt so comfortable on my ears.
At the end of the service there was a Mourner’s Kaddish and I thought of my good friend Perry. While he is no longer with us I keep him alive within me and all the great times we had. If he had been with me or rather I’d would have been with him, he would have explained everything in detail to me. And then tongue in cheek, explain why I would never really get it. Miss you Perry!
Here are a couple of links for those of us that want to know but don’t quite know… Rosh Hashanah and Book of Life
One last thing, part of the service is the blowing of the Shofar and I had the privilege to have photographed Meira Warshauer’s music that she wrote for a Shofar. Fits nicely with today.
Interesting article by Don Giannatti about the need or not for a professional photographer.

One thing that Mom loved was fall and the Buckeyes, especially the band. And one of the best show ever on stage is The Ohio State Marching Band on the stage at Vets Memorial. Close to the stage where you could feel everything!
This half time show you would love. Enjoy…
I’m not a fan boy nor do I know the ins and outs of the Marvel comic book universe, but the movies from them are great and I thought I’d see what ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was all about.
Briefly, so as to not give anything away, sort of… GREAT movie, even greater music. Fun to watch and now I have to connect the dots at Marvel. We are Groot, we grove to the music.
At the end of the film the audience applauded and NO one left. Now I have to see how they take the end of the movie, end, and tie it all together. Enjoy the flick, so worth it.
Ck it out.

It matters not how high you jump, throw, walk or run. Just do it and as an individual accomplishment or as a team you have won. Step up to the line, move forward and finish.
The state meet has started @ Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Will be a fun weekend.
