Dear Boston,

We've known each other a few years now, but recently we've become closer, more intimate.  I must admit, you were cold and harsh at first, but last week when NPR and I met in the Commons to take these photos, I really started warming up to you.  Your skies were blue, your air crisp yet warm, the sights and sounds of your people strolling, lunching, laughing, it was getting to me.

I'm saddened by the foolish people caused this senseless terror, especially when it was your time to shine.  Admittedly, I was scared to learn bombs were going off only three blocks from my office.  Your people, your public servants and plain clothed citizens, who dashed towards the explosions and saved lives or the runners who continued running to the hospital to donate blood have heartened me, reminding me of the good in humanity.  Thank you for being you, Boston.  I can't wait to get to know you and your people better.

With love.



  1. Yup, reading this just put a lump in my throat.

    Is it weird that thinking of you walking the streets of Boston makes me feel better about the whole city? It's got you there to contribute so hugely to the life-support stream of energy and love. So I know it'll be fine.

    1. aw shucks. is it weird that you're like my favorite person I've never met?

    I hope the young man that they captured is willing to provide some answers to the drama that he and his brother caused last week.

    As for this outfit... LOVE it! That dress looks super cute on you and I like your use of the lace trimmed bike shorts underneath to make it a bit more wearable without showing everything. Your otk socks really top it off!
