Just One Week

We have one week a year, which we seperate from the rest of the year and say...this is it, you're in the spotlight, if you could replay every past Wednesday fromt he past year, what would you do differently. This is your chance without being caught up in so many distractions, it's set perfectly between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippor, highlighted as the week of repentance. So, how was your second-chance Wednesday spent? Hey, there's always tomorrow...

Ode To My Americans

Yes you live across the ocean,
and you wish I lived there too
But I've visited your land
And there's somethings missing for you...
No one wished me a good year in the airport, or a store
while here i've been hit with them galore
the stores, the busses, the random guy on the street
living here is just so neat
it's not that i think what you're doing isn't right
it's just that my country is so tight
It was fun to see ya'll - don't get down
and I imagine i'll be back before too long
But you've got to spend here some serious time
So you understand the point of this here rhyme

Nutshelling It...

Detroit is cold..not the people of course, just the weather...the people are all warm and wanna know how I am, and what's going on..and where do I live now, and what am I doing, and how do I like it...anything but cold :)
NY was exhausting...I think I saw more people individually in two days than a normal person could've fit into two weeks...still I missed some peoples and I'm sorry (Jon & Erez...that's for you)
My meeting last Monday was very positive, however I won't know anything for at least two months...School starts right after that'll be perfect timing to be overwhelmed with as much as possible...but to just kinda glide until most things in my life work in cycles of nothing and bombardment...
Shabbos Kallah today was really nice...much nicer once all the people left and I could just chill with my fam and the Kallah's fam...should'a just waited and come really late :)
Backgammoned, Scrabbled, and Scatergoried, and while I lost some, I won all :)

Deep Breath

Ok, big meeting on Monday for me. I'm off to speak to an established organization about adopting RAMI. I'll share more details if there is what to share. I'm more then a little apprehensive. Last time I partnered with an organization for an idea of mine I watched in anguish as they slowly tortured it, until it was just another program I could barely recognize as my own. I've only just recovered from watching that... I have looked into running this one myself and creating a non-profit org...but I know I can't run it on my own, and the people I've found who are "very interested" in helping have been less then helpful. I know they say if you want it done right you need to do it yourself, but you also need to know your strengths and weaknesses... my strength is not in networking and is not in politics.... Hopefully this org will be able to rise to that challange and leave me to create and execute the program. (Rock), I do understand there will be some changes and compromises, but I can hope not too much...can't I...
