34th Street, New York City

New York City. Sunset: 6:24pm. Moon: Waxing crescent. Cloudy with a high of 66 degrees and a low of 57. Finally, a semi-autumnal day with proper gloom. Took the Q down to 34th street to load up on ramen, pork shoulder, gochujang, bok choy, and extreme-flavored shrimp chips from H-Mart and Woorjip.

A dog-sized rat scurried along the subway platform. Everyone pulled out their screens, cameras ready to flash, and two people nearly fell on the tracks. Everything feels like a metaphor these days.

Shamble and Stride

Sunset: 6:35pm. Moon: Waning crescent. This morning I went for an ugly jog and accidentally got absorbed into a marathon-in-progress.

The Last Ritual

Sunset: 6:16pm. Moon: Waxing gibbous. The first rituals began to make sure the sun would rise each morning, and I often wonder what the last ritual might be.
