Over the Counter and Generic Counting

Are we finished counting?  A student asked me this morning:  What am I going to do with my son who has been counting along with me and excited to remind me each night—let’s count the Omer? What do we do now that the count is over?  In following the method of following the count of the weeks as a program for change, we realize that ending the count at Shavuot is not an ending alone, it is also a beginning. Although there is no tradition to continue the count it would make sense that we can start again, and follow the flow of another fifty days starting this Sunday. This could apply to going deeper or changing focus and looking at another area of life that we can move through a process of change.  Rest one day.  Reformulate. No recounts. Just forward movement.
