Your place is your fortress from which you emerge each day to slay the dragons, or be slayed. You plan to outlive your spouse because the opposite would seem moot. If you are the first to go, it doesn’t matter.
Spaces are places you inhabit, walk through, live within or nearby. You walk through places to get things, you walk through places to get there. Places are where you find yourself. If you find yourself
in Boston, here are some places and spaces. The neighborhoods are defined in many ways, parks, flowers, streets, public places, restaurants, shops and more.
The winding paths of growth through Boston since and before the Revolutionary Years has mostly lead to the Boston Garden and the Boston Common. That stretch of land in the center of town that has been the epicenter of so much history through the years.
While Boston is diverse in many ways, so too are the neighborhoods. Chinatown and the North End are popular sections of the city but no less so then the Fenway area where the Red Sox play, or Heartbreak Hill where the Boston Marathon goes by Boston College. This was an agricultural area for centuries. During those years and as the population spread out from Boston Common it took the farm lands that were it’s outer boundaries surrounding the city.They are now part of the inner city that is served by public transportation, The MBTA, the “T” as it is known. It is one of the oldest public transportation systems in the country. It connects the town. This connects the people to their spaces and places.
