#blogExodus Day 1: Launch
Today we launch the strangest Nisan ever.
With two weeks to go until the Seder, my house is full of chametz and not a box of matzah in sight.
My Facebook feed is not full of carmelizing onions or jokes about covering the whole kitchen in foil. Instead, it's full of posts about whether it's safe to bring in the mail and how to snag the last instacart time slot available for the week.
This year is different. Using the word "different" feels so small and insignificant. It's beyond different. It's monumentally, fundamentally, outrageously different.
And yet, we launch Nisan. Because the calendar doesn't slow down or stop. Because Passover is, at its very core, a celebration that we always need, even in the midst of darkness. Even when we are scared and worried and anxious and afraid, even when our focus is elswhere, the calendar launches us into Nisan.
So just for today, take a breath. Organize a thought. Consider the next step.
Launch into Nisan.
