Like Na‘omi Returning From Mo’av

I walked over 300 blocks (=15 miles) this Shavu‘os, back and forth between different neighborhoods in Manhattan for purposes of Learning, Davening, Eating, Showering, Hanging Out, and Visiting. Not quite as far as Sinai, but close. And it was mad hot out, but not on those viaducts by the Hudson River at 6am. But I can't shake the feeling that maybe stepping into a pleasantly-airconditioned but frighteningly-upscale mall for a break might have an aura of mar’it ‘ayin about it. Also, did anyone else notice the sun being an incredibly deep dark orange color about half an hour before sunset, hanging over the Palisades set like a brooding emo kid in their chair?

last summer i got stuck in the city as shabbat started and i ended up walking back to flatbush. the worst part of the night was when i had to go so badly that i went into a mcdonalds. i thought god was going to strike me down right there.
