September 20, 2006



the pitch black of the underground was replaced with the twinkling vista of Boston at night. Straight ahead out the window opposite me were the Hancock and Prudential towers, glowing across the placid water of the Charles. To the right of them the Citgo sign repeated its ritualistic patterns of neon.

Between those two icons another, brighter, white light shone on the horizon--the light towers of Fenway Park. The train clattered out of the station and I watched those lights until we were back underground.

Wonderful description. Is it possible to feel homesick for a place you've only visited once? ;-)


i think so. i get homesick for it sometimes and i live here.
