Navigating Narrow Straits

Tonight (and tomorrow and Thursday) mark Rosh Chodesh Av.  The past few weeks have been a whirlwind, a tornado of emotion, for our family, and I have been driving myself crazy trying to decide what to write about next.  Recently, I stumbled upon a very lengthy article I wrote about five years ago called “Removing the Dross ~ Preparation for the Month of Av” and smiled, because it was really far too wordy for one post.  I dusted it off, reformatted it, and added a few new things, now calling it “Navigating Narrow Straits, A Beginner’s Guide to the Nine Days.”  Each day, I hope to encourage and empower my readers with my experience, strength and hope, preparing our hearts, together, for the communal fast of the 9th of Av.  I believe that through teshuva we can still greet Chodesh Av with a Chodesh Tov.  In the meantime, please enjoy this beautiful version of Psalm 23 https://sashyaclark.com/navigating-narrow-straits/
