After vacation, we go back to our regular schedules, refreshed and invigorated. We also put into our memories of this vacation the good times, bonding with friends and family, and the mistakes made due to lack of preparation or proper foresight. These memories we plan to use to make our next vacation more wholesome and enjoyable.

This Ki Seitzei, leaving our normal lifestyle to go on vacation, prepares us for the next vacation. So too, as we examine our struggles and victories over the past year, we can then apply the lessons learned to 5775 to make it a better year than 5774.
