Light and joy!

Bowls, colorful dots and electric tape - our mishloach manos packages

It was a very beautiful and joyous Purim here.  It was complete with costumes, a mountain of mishloach manos, oversugared bouncing off the walls kids, reconnecting with family and friends, with walls literally vibrating with music and dancing at some point.  It was as exhilarating as it was exhausting but also spiritual and wonderous and special in a way I don't remember experiencing our other Purims in the recent past.  While racing around trying to fullfill all the day's mitzvos, I think the Purim spirit of love and joy and sharing and optimism really took hold this year.  Thank G-d! And now that Purim is behind us and Pesach is not yet upon us, it's time to try to get back into some semblance of a routine and try to get the many things on the "to do after Purim" mental list while taking the Purim light and joy with us into the mundane.
