An artist cannot be continually wielding a brush. An artist must stop painting at times to freshen his or her vision.

Living is also an art. We dare not become so absorbed in its technical processes that we lose our consciousness of its general plan.

The Sabbath represents those moments when we pause in our brushwork to renew our vision. Having done so, we take ourselves to our painting with clarified vision and renewed energy. This applies to the individual and to the community alike.
-Mordecai Kaplan

Why make an account?

Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
