Yom Kippur is over and was a wonderful highly holy expeience, great to share it with Ruth and Chris (and Sprout). I was struck by the acrostic prayers in the litugy and made my own with one of my favorite sayings.

Love Not Ego

Loss, gain, pride, shame.
Only confuse and confound
Value flows from intention.
Each choice bends fate.

No gift or affliction exempts.
Outside, inside, hurt or whole,
Truth unites us, soul to soul.

Each can follow. Each must lead.
Give, question, ask, receive
Open, then seal, compassion's gate.
