Cast Away

"all I ask is a second chance"
-Seal
The ten day period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is meant to be a period of introspection. We reflect on our behaviors of the past year and consider where and whom we've wronged. There's a tradition known as tashlich where we are meant to cast away our sins. This is often practiced by tossing something into a body of water.
This afternoon, Little Bird and I visited the Cider Mill and brought with us a couple pieces of bread. We tossed them into the river and fed the ducks. I think those ducks got full quickly on all my sins of the past year!!
She's such a cutie pie ...

She really is such a cutie pie! That look on her face when the duck took the bread is precious. You are a good Mom, taking her for these great experiences. Perhaps you remember another Mom taking you to the ponds to feed the birds. Love....
