Greetings Lenny,

It's been awhile.

Seems like I picked the right time to pop on over as your "days of awe" essay is quite insightful and wonderfully inclusive.

As an atheist, I know it's joked that we don't have any good holidays...but I prefer to think that we have complete freedom to share in those aspects in which we see meaning in everyone else's holidays.

I've always liked what the tradition of breaking bread entails as it comes from the time that sharing your food with someone was an expression that their well being was important to you, all the more so should it be a feast that you were invited to partake in.

In my own godlessness, I still see inspired nuggets of wisdom from other fellow travelers. This has always been a secular favorite of mine -

"We are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is."
— Mark Vonnegut author of "The Eden Express: A Memoir of Insanity"

And here's a tune I'm quite fond of as it expresses my willingness to just go with the flow. Hope you enjoy it.

Sincere best regards,
