About Falling Fallow

Wondering what it would be like to try to stop trying, I wrote my prose-poem “Falling Fallow” in response to this Shmita year’s HHD theme suggested by Rabbi Irwin Keller (Ner Shalom, Cotati, California): “Respite, Repair, Renewal.” I will have the honor of reading my piece aloud during Rosh Hashanah morning services.
