And then I rushed back to work as soon as the shiva was over. Since I only work part-time, I didn't "take off" work when my son got married. I sort of squeezed it all in.
Now I'm feeling it, especially when people ask me how I am, if I've recovered form the wedding, if things have really begun to sink in. I didn't really give myself a chance before. And now it's almost Rosh Hashannah, which this year is a challenging three day "yontiff," because it's immediately followed by Shabbat.
I must admit that I am starting to feel that things have changed. So much is mixed up.
And just like in the middle of a Jewish wedding ceremony the chattan, groom breaks a glass, to remind us all that Jerusalem still hasn't be rebuilt. We still don't have the Holy Temple on the Temple Mount.
