I know I said I didn't feel connected to Rosh Hashana. The fact is, it's my fault. I did not make keilim (vessels) for it. I remember learning once that the energy of the yomim tovim is kind of like packages at a post office. They're waiting for you, but you have to pick them up. A brand new energy was permeating the universe on Rosh Hashana, but I didn't check my p.o. box. If I had da'avened or learned instead of being a bum, I might have received my mail!
As Yaakov likes to say, "If G-d feels far away, who moved?"
