I've been out of it for a little while [and everyone's having delusions of grandeur]
Sorry for the delay in posting for a while. My learning seder was lacking that crucial Hasidic component that allows me to synthesize my thoughts, so my thoughts in general have been somewhat blurry of late. As I, b'Ezrat HaShem, pick up some new directions in Hassidut, and more importantly, return to some old ones, I hope to incorporate all the other new material I have been consuming but which less lends itself to simple exposition.
May all who read this (and those many more who don't) share a wonderfully sweet year full of health, happiness, and family!
