A quiet Shabbat

We Zoomed to Torah Study for the first time in over a month; this week’s portion is Behar (Leviticus 25:1–26:2). The discussion focused on the sabbatical year and why it’s important to rest the land (and ourselves) deeply from time to time. I enjoyed being back!

We spent the rest of the day at home and taking walks; it was the first really warm day of spring, so we didn’t want to go out in the middle of the day. And of course, we continued to isolate.

The most constructive thing I did today was to decide that I didn’t really have to read two months’ worth of the New York Times Book Review – a quick skim was more than adequate. And the same fate met another pile of magazines and newsletters that were haunting me. It’s not a big accomplishment, but it helps!
