Unaccustomed As I Am to Public Blogging …

I've been waiting a very long time to use that title; it seemed so appropriate for this blog which is isn't at all personal and bloggish. It's a shame it had to wait so long, and to make it into what's very likely my final entry here.

The crisp Elul morning has turned old and cloudy, and it's now winter. The truth is that very few people read it (some regularly -- and you both know who you are …) and others irregularly, but most by accident.

I'll maintain its stand-alone offshoots, though: , , , and , and may set up another on who-knows-what, but A Crisp Elul morning has ended for all intents and purposes. If I do go back to it, you'll know, but it's not likely. You're aslo invited to subscribe to either my Ramchal or Spiritual-Excellencw series at (at and respectively).

As always, feel free to contact me at .

Best wishes for a good, new year (5768),
