52 Sabbaths Experiment
Welcome! I’m Sonja Haller
I am a journalist seeking a good story, a deeper connection with myself, God and the mysteries of life.
I’m the mother of three, crack-up, whip-smarts girls and married to their compassionate-yet-fiery father.
I practice meditation, cloud-watching and doughnut sampling. I avoid organizing the linen closet, buying new bras and most dairy. I possess a deep interest in people, their well-being and life’s goals and lessons, but I often surprise myself with the numbness I feel in my own heart.
I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I want to feel more peace. I want to feel less anxiety. I’ve always wanted these things and one night I had a dream in which that small, wise voice told me to take a Sabbath. The voice was that of my editor who would blush if I told him I dreamed of him.
I took it as a sign.
Now whether this secular girl can find any of that in her experiment to experience 52 Sabbaths with all the dedication mustered in an overstuffed life remains to be seen. But I’m forecasting that at the very least I will have found a deeper connection with something, someone or myself.
