An excerpt from Chaos (B’reishit, October 21, 2006)

...the new beginning is never what it was before.  I don’t get to go back to where I’ve never hurt the people to whom I’ve now apologized, and I can’t expect that hurt to have no future impact however sorry I may be.  Similarly, B’reishit is never the same, and neither is any portion of Torah throughout the year. It becomes invested with what we bring it anew.  In other words, it is never as simple as black and while.

Yet, there is consistency: the words do not change.  So we function within a system that merges constancy with fluidity, and the balancing act is tough.
