Yom Kippur Gardening

September 29, 2009

Today being (for Jews) the day of atonement, Anna and I did some weeding in the garden. (You wouldn’t think yard work would be on top of the list of activities for the last four hours of a 24-hour period of fasting, but sometimes it actually feels better to be active than to wallow in the discomfort of hunger.) Once finished, we went to the town recycling center to dump our garden detritus (just as we dump the guilty freight of the year’s misdeeds by asking forgiveness from those we have wronged – it’s all about Yom Kippur, see?). While there, I noticed that the buildings of the facility seem to be in the process of being recycled back to nature as well. I think it looked cool:
