Traditions for a change?

Traditions…

Because of our traditions,
we’ve kept our balance for many, many years.
And because of our traditions,
every one of us knows who he is
and what God expects him to do. – Words from  a fiddler on the roof:

Hum….
I wonder what we might need to learn from the people of Anatevka, in “Fiddler on the Roof” for our generation

Think about this for a minute:
Without traditions, our lives would be as shaky as a fiddler on the roof
How does that sit with you? As a people, how do we keep our balance? are traditions synonymous with ‘balance?’ what signs, what rituals & what symbols characterizes your life? What does  the rhythms of our lives say about us? How should we care?

    “Fiddler on the Roof” is my favorite musical ! Good choice for one to ponder, bringing in a new year ! All the best to you and your family in 2011 Daniel, and a rewarding year for all your work at the orphanage. God Bless.

    • Thank so much Laurie! Have a wonderful new year! I really do wonder what we might need to learn from the people of Anatevka, in “Fiddler on the Roof” for our generation – Without traditions, in what ways could our lives be as shaky as a fiddler on the roof…and how, how do we keep our moral balance? are traditions synonymous with ‘balance’ in the face of so much relativity? I muse about the fruit that might grow out of a journey with a little more traditions in our lives.

      Many blessings, Daniel
