How do we decide to be who we are meant to be?
Are we to unfurl a scroll and walk the length of our ancestors?
Are we to go forth, like Abraham to Canaan?
Or stay behind, like Moses who arrived just shy of the Promised Land?
No matter our steps
No matter how measured or unsure
Let the desert and its mystery
Wrap us in a Greater Knowing
That our selves, like our ancestors, are bound up in the journey
And that with every twist and turn,
G-d, and we, too
Resiliently and revealingly
