Taking a Break


I am going to be taking a break from most online activity over the next few months, until the start of 2016. Starting from midnight tonight, this means no Twitter (with minor exceptions for necessary DMs), no personal blogging, cutting down blog reading to a minimum, minimizing non-essential e-mail correspondence, and abstaining from commenting.

You may have noticed that, over the last year or so, this blog has mostly consisted of links to pieces that I have written elsewhere, punctuated by Open Mic Threads, so it probably won’t make much of a difference to the way things run here. I will still post links to articles I have written (expect several of these) and will still post Open Mic Thread posts (although I won’t participate in them).

I would value your prayers for the next few months: please pray that it will be a productive, enjoyable, and refreshing time.

See you all in 2016!

  3. Sounds like an electronic sabbath, among other things. Here’s a little word from Rabbi Heschel on the matter for your parting; may you find the refreshing you are looking for: https://rhfoerger.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/the-sabbath-morning-prayer/
