A Look Back

I spent a few minutes reviewing the archives here at the Shack and was pleasantly surprised by some of what I found. I think that I want to do a monster post about what I blogged about this past year. I am intrigued by the idea but also somewhat dismayed by the size of it.

It is safe to describe me as being prolific. There are days in which I might have posted seven or eight times. Conservatively speaking I probably averaged around 5 posts a day. That means that there is an enormous amount of material to cover. This is a project that will take some time to complete.

But it is kind of fun to take the blog as a snapshot of my life and to see what it is that I thought about. It is nice to explore these thoughts/issues and dreams and see if they still hold the same import or if the significance of them has diminished over time.

I look and ask myself a few questions.
  1. Have I grown and matured?
  2. Do I like what I see?
  3. What have I learned?
  4. Have I applied any of these lessons to my life?
Some of the posts from the past that have caught my eye include:

The Mechitzah

Faith in G-d

A Moment In Time- Perspective for the coming Shabbos

The Search For Answers About Our Ourselves

Would love to see a year-end recap at the Shack! Great idea for most other bloggers, too...

Hi Prag,

I enjoy doing this, so it really is easy.

Mcaryeh,

It is kind of a monster project, but I am going to try.

David,

I sent off a note to Ezzie so he should have some material.
