I'm posting this video of excerpts from the Northern Exposure episode "Shofar, So Good" which is a Dickensian take on Yom Kippur. I generally identify with Joel Fleischman (apart from not having a doctorate and a few other ponts). Even if you are not Jewish, I hope you take the time to reflect during this time of the year (even if the Days of Awe have now technically passed). Shanah Tovah.
May it be known that the following poem is my intellectual property and should not be reproduced or distributed without my permission, however you may link to this page should you so desire. Seriously, I'm extremely paranoid about the lack of privacy or respect of property on the internet and I take an awful risk even posting this. But as I've tried and failed several times to see it published, I produce it here. If it is misused, I will not hesitate to take it down. Please do not steal my words or ideas. This poem in its earliest draft is at least 5 years old. "Sometimes"
