bike to nowhere
Rosh Hashana approaching and almost one year since the beginning of my one (shortly lived) pregnancy has me a little blue. Milestones and markers remind me of the passage of time and give me the creeping sensation of having gone nowhere. It seems like everyone else is off to somewhere in life but we've just been peddling away furiously on a stationary bike. And yet in some strange sense I am somewhere completely different from where I was last Rosh Hashana, it is just not the somewhere I imagined I would be.
