This afternoon I had lunch with a good friend in Brooklyn.
We sat down in a garden and we talked about the meaning of religious rituals.
“What’s the meaning of celebrating religious holidays when you are not a believer?” my friend asked.
I didn’t have an answer.
Perhaps meaning is overestimated.
Every human being is entitled to meaningless rituals and meaningless sex, if not every day, at least once a month.
