"We're so sorry, Uncle Albert" Paul McCartney

If I, if I have been unkind,
I hope that you can just let it go by.
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you.

Leonard Cohen ( Bird on a Wire)

Please forgive me. For failing to be all I could be, for not being responsive to your calls for help, for being so focused on my struggles, I did not see yours.

Forgive me for asking for it all, and being upset when I didn't get. Forgive me, and this is big one, for not thanking you all, especially my patients and staff who have been so generous with your gifts and words of love.

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Wayne Thompson, Mark James, & Johnny Christopher

This is not a backhanded way to solicit  posts or emails trying to reassure me or cheer me up. I am not depressed, just human. This is a mitzvah, a commandment, my redemptive work in preparation for the Jewish New Year. 

I am also not blind to both my faults and my virtues. I know that the blog is a good thing and I am proud of much of what I do. But like all of us, I am flawed and have hurt others through omission and commission.

Please, please do not respond, unless there is some wrong I have done that I can undo or you can find it in your heart to forgive. Then please do send me an email (BkoffmanMD@gmail.com) and I will reply.

So many hearts I find, broke like yours and mine
Torn by what we've done and can't undo

Jennifer Warnes & Leonard Cohen (Song of Bernadette)

May we all have a year of health and joy.

G-d bless
