As those of you who regularly read Playground know, this blog is new. It’s still a baby; and like every newborn, it needs constant care, attention and affection. Every day I learn its likes and dislikes. I learn about the things it needs – and this brings me to a new installment.
I’ve decided to start a Boston is Beautiful segment to the blog. I’ll just showcase different pictures I take around the city. I always carry my camera on me. You know, you never know when a photo op will present itself. My camera is kind of like my weapon, it keeps me safe and prepared for any situation I may encounter around the Hub. (This brings me back to high school with Dr. Math Teach calling calculators ‘guns.’ In full disclosure, I was never in his class, but all my close amigas were. Come on people, I’m a writer, I would never take advanced math.) So, my camera is to me, what calculators were to my friends circa 2004. Ok enough with this analogy.
So I took the following pictures Sunday night. I was sitting on my bed, writing an essay on how abstinence-only campaigns are ineffective, and pretty much hating life. I looked up and saw the sun setting. It made me realize, dear readers, that even when you’re stuck indoors writing papers, life isn’t all that bad.
