1. L'shanah Tova to you too. My family has a Rosh Hashanah dinner when we can, so it will be Saturday. We've been adjusting holidays to suit us for years. Distances have to be considered, and since I'm the only one willing to host this and given that I live in the same city as my 90-year-old mother who refuses to travel out of town, I have to consider the homies and not have a family event on a working day. And then, rather than wait for one day of the year to self-reflect, I do it every day of the year. I wonder when these ancient practices of a desert tribe will disappear altogether. I have more to say on this another time, Kantos, but it's nice be a member of your tribe.

Re relationships and given that I was pinged:

    Granted, we just met, I'm surprised to note there isn't a rush or thrill of meeting like I'm used to. Is this normal? Does this mean I don't care as much? Or is this growth?

Since you asked: It might be growth which I read as caution. It might be you don't care as much. You'll know soon.

I was so burned by physical attraction that I just went with respect, thinking maybe that might be more reliable an indicator of a good match. It wasn't. Never underestimate the bonding that can be provided by shared interest in cuddling.
