Quick note for a longish day. I spent time dashing into my office between lecture sections and talking to people, finishing up in time to rescue the teens from the train station.
We had time for dinner before sunset.
Unlike the previous years, we seem to be floating free. The 19 year old is the only one who has a chance of being somewhere that there are services to attend. I had looked around here for the teens and myself. Other than getting quite complicated for transportation, the choices were orthodox, orthodox and even more orthodox.
Instead, it will be quiet time spent reading. If not this year, then next.
May those of you who are fasting have an easy fast. Please, add a prayer in Yitzkor for all of our service members who have lost their lives this past year.
And let there be peace.
