  1. This Elul, my teshuvah includes quitting the Democratic Party because it is committed to promoting so-called “gay rights” and so-called “gay marriage”, and joining the Conservative Party, because it is the only party committed to opposing so-called “gay marriage.”

  2. My same items keep coming up again every year for scrutiny. There is some progress on most fronts, but far more to do. At least, being conscious of problems helps in addressing them.

    Most center on developing more patience and on-taskness.

  3. For me, Elul isn’t so much a time to “work on” stuff as much as a time to consider how I’ve done over the year with the “stuff” I targeted at the year’s beginning and worked on during the year.
