torah

Two steps forward, one step back

Adobe's end-of-year shutdown has started, but the kids still have school. So I have a PRODUCTIVE DAY available, and I had decided a few weeks ago that I was going to use it to get my siddur project up to date.

One thing I had considered adding was the non-musaf middle beracha for Rosh ha-Shanah. I've spent the last hour entering it and rearranging things to get it to fit, and... it doesn't, quite. I'm going to be about two lines over. So now I have to decide whether to revert to my previous checkpoint... and I'm not happy either way. I want to make this work.

So I will take a lunch break and come back to it.

In the meantime, let me share a page that I completely redid today. I wanted to bring out the poetry of the text: Collapse )

I really like how this page came out, and so when I get frustrated about the Rosh ha-Shanah setback, I should balance it with joy and pride in how the "Atah Hu" page looks.
