Arts Fenway

I love a good spot of city art and was super excited to stumble across this a few weeks ago when out running. Nestled below the Charlesgate Bridge and around the corner from Fenway Park it was a colorful spot on my run!
The murals were created by students at the Boston Academy of the Arts and were really amazing! I love the pops of colors and shapes. It's also so fun to be stumbling across new things, even after 9.5 years living here!

Spring is in Sight

Spring this year has got me feeling like a horse that never left the post,
I lie in my room staring up at the ceiling,
Spring can really hang you up the most!
Spring can really hang you up the most!

{Ella Fitzgerald -- Spring Can Really Hang You up the Most}

It seems equal parts odd and welcomed that as we all cacoon in our homes to help Flatten the Curve spring is beginning in earnest here in the Northern Hemisphere. A ying and yang. 

It's been so good for my mood to see new buds and blooms when I go out for a run or a late evening mind-clearing walk.

Spring will be mighty different, but I am so glad the normalcy of flowers blooming and leaves emerging is here to provide some stability.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 13

The Good:
Another book down! I am not a huge biography person, but this one was an amazing peek into her life. I loved how much she focused on President Obama too - they really became a "them" and that was a key part of the story.

The Random:
We got a small coating of snow last week. The snowmen were NOT social distancing!

The Fun:
I had a social distancing hike in a local reservation. I love hikes that have big rocky areas to scurry up.

Boston Bricks

I read about Winthrop Lane and the Boston Bricks on Atlas Obscura and had to get down to the financial district to check them out. The inlaid bronze bricks created by artist Kate Burke feature the best of Boston's past and present and were installed a few years back.

From what I've read online there were once 100 of them - some were obviously pulled up and replaced with regular bricks with numbers in sharpie, so maybe they'll be returned!
