My 100 Word Challenge - Try It - Write Anything Coherent and Whole That Is Exactly 100 Words

I want to be profound inside a hundred words. I have the dots, just need to connect them: Faith, honesty and integrity, respect for self, friends, authority, and G-d, family, friends, love, work, health - both mentally and physically, creativity and play. For these words to mean something you need to have G-d and other people in your life on a regular basis. You need to be there too. You have to always be tending to your giant pot of soup, sharing it, and believing that the Master Chef is constantly stirring and tweaking it for you, making it perfect.

One hundred is a unit much as five tally marks (four standing tall, a fifth diagonally crossing over the others) are a pack. Much as sheaves of wheat in Yosef's dream were bunches. Bunches bowing to righteousness. Much as we ought to. Much as we would bow to an elder knarled with wisdom after a century of living. For one hundred (plus twenty {please G-d}) we hope we stood upright, until crossing over our packed years, entering a dream-world of truth, a world where righteousness counts, a world where we bow to the One, to the unit that is unity.
