“L’chayim!” is what my people say when we toast. It translates to “to your health,” which is essentially what this month was all about.
Last night I went to my friend Mark’s 40th surprise birthday party. I figured I would catch up with some of my friends from the storytelling community, but I didn’t imagine that I would get a great self-care exercise from them.
I learned that last night there was a Super Blood Wolf Moon happening, which is a total lunar eclipse. Science was my worst subject in school. So bad that my sister used to sing, to the tune of Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me with Science,” “She got a C in science. She got a C in science.”
