Flying Shiva

I flew home today; as on the way to Richmond, the needs of life in TravelLand took over. It was odd seeing myself in a mirror for the first time in three days, especially given that I haven’t shaved since the funeral.

My friends had organized a shiva minyan at the house; it was good to have them here. It was also good that United got me home on time, so that we had dinner before the minyan — last night, I was so busy dealing with DHL that I mostly ate sweets for dinner, and that’s probably not good for me.
