as seasons ebb and flow..

it seems, perhaps.....that it is not really ABOUT THE SEASON at all......
it is REALLY and TRULY about the EBB AND FLOW.....
the organic rhythms of life's symbiotic concurrence....
manifestations of drumming heard 'from afar'....
yodeling!!!
the sound of the shofar......nearing once again......
to alert us of 'judgement' and such......
in order to contemplate.......to sojourn......to reconcile......
that which appears, certainly, to be 'irreconcilable'.....
lobsters and taxis and purist, white gowns......
to don on the 'atoning' day......
burial in same.....sameness........purification from 'impurity'....as it were...
is the blood of a WOMAN impure?? dirty??
is the blood of a cow, when slaughtered 'mercifully', actually CLEANER THAN THE MONTHLY BLOOD OF A WOMAN???
think about the implications of such hierarchy!!!!
the sages will surely have the answers to these puzzling rules.....
or the greater rabbinic court........
yes!!! yes!!!
we will ask them to rule on our quandary!!!
our 'irreconcilable' quandary......
sages come and go!
but quandary and quagmire and dilemma are MOST certainly a fixture down here......
where we, the searchers of the GOLD, are dwelling.....
