Get Jewish Week deadlines done. (One, two, three.)
Hustle for more freelance work.
Write insane piece for PresenTense about dating advice books and try not to hurl myself off a building to avoid having to finish it.
Pray that in the land of miracles, there will be a deadline-related one. Or four.
Edit Issue Two of PresenTense.
Go to the kotel once a week during my stay, put in refuah shlemah notes for the people who are suffering--those who are dear to me, and those whose names I do not know.
Spend as little money as possible.
Pray. To something or someone. About something or someone. Peace, health, freedom, redemption. No big whoop. Just coffee talk...with "the big guy."
Find the words, express them aloud and in print, in the hope that they sprout turbo-jet wings and fly to where ever they're supposed to go.
Wishing you all a happy new year, wherever you are...and hoping you'll forgive me for light posting...
