What is this that is appearing in the courtyard next door at the Graduate Theological Union?
Is that a sukkah? it most definitely is. And I'm jealous. I would love to have my own sukkah this year, but it isn't going to happen. I've nowhere to put it. the lovely advice to put it on your balcony if you have an apartment only holds true it you have a balcony. If the closest you have to a balcony is a 2 foot by 2 foot fire escape which is shared among 10 tenants on your floor, has a slatted floor, and is the communal fire escape, sitting in your sukkah in the shade or under the stars isn't going to happen. Which is one reason (among many many many) that I want a studio with a yard. We're going to look at one tomarrow. I haven't asked how much the rent is. I'm scared to do so. I need something that costs less not more. and honestly, I love our location. but I want a backyard. I'm just a little loathe to give up our first home together. Just when it is starting to feel like a home.
Ah well, we'll have sukkos dinner as guests with some folks from shul, and I am looking forward to that greatly. Have a good sukkos.
