I confess, it is true. Every week The New Yorker comes and every week it makes me anxious as I add it to the pile of the last several weeks’ New Yorker that I have still to read. It might seem logical to unsubscribe to The New Yorker. The problem is, every time that I do, I miss it too much so I’m stuck with this constant cycle adding a new one to the pile. I find that the articles within The New Yorker are so helpful. Not all the time, enough of the time. Sometimes there is material for a sermon. Other times it is something that I learn. Then there are the times that I get information about something and for no reason, or maybe every reason, becomes the topic of a fascinating conversation.
I am open to suggestions that might alleviate some of this anxiety which I have not previously though of. I’d also love to know how you read The New Yorker in a manageable way and still manage to read the myriad of other publications in print or online.
Thank goodness Shabbat is coming. Anxiety is not allowed!
