A New Year and Other Beginnings

The first signs of a festival started appearing all over yesterday. I noticed Jewish New Year wishes via special cakes – challa and honey bread at the bakeries. Little memorial lights candles are for sale in the local supermarket, and there’s a sense of vitality at the start of something new; tweets and Facebook updates are full of wishes for freshness and renewal. The new Broadway season is kicking off, a new school year has begun this week, and fall is here – although the city is hanging on to summer with a vengeance.
