Resolutions for Rosh haShona

Coming up is the holiday of Rosh haShona, the Jewish New year. As is my custom, I have written down my resolutions for Rosh HaShona:

I will continue to conduct myself with self-love, self-esteem, and self-respect,paying attention to the positive aspects of my life, speaking and thinking positively about myself.

I will continue to set aside time for rest, recreation, and fun.

I will continue to set time aside to read books.

I will continue to advance my art and business as a writer, assenting forums, seminars, conferences, etc.

I will continue to advance my various social and political causes.

I will continue to be faithful to Jewish religion, culture, history, etc.

I will continue all forms of education, such as galleries, museums, lectures, forusm, etc.

I will continue to pursue all other forms of artistic endeavor, such as acting.

I bid everyone L’Shana Tova, a sweet, happy, and prosperous new year to all of you.

Aida and the Amici Opera Company

My friends at the Amici Opera Company will perform the opera Aida, by Giuseppi Verdi, on Sunday September 13 at 3:00 PM, and Saturday September 19, at 4:00 PM, at the Redeemer United Methodist Church, 1128 Cottman Avenue, in Philadelphia. It is the story of Aida, an Ethiopian princess enslaved in Egypt; an Egyptian general, Ramades, is in love with her, but he must choose between his love of Aida and his loyalty to the king of Egypt, and the king’s daughter, Amneris, is in love with Ramades, but he does not return her love. When you come to the show, please wear your mask; hand sanitizer will be available.

I urge everyone to support their locally-based arts venues and performances; the arts are for everyone.
