Green space in Cambridge is a perfect place to celebrate the longest day of the year.

June 21 is the Summer Solstice; the longest day of the year. And what better way to celebrate than strolling through some green space here in our fair city?

I took a long, slow walk around one of the places in my neighborhood of North Cambridge to enjoy the abundance of ponds, trees, flowers, and tall grasses.

Leavitt & Peirce

If These Walls Could Talk

Leavitt & Peirce may just be the oldest small business in Cambridge. Located in its original location since 1883, this tobacco and cigar shop has withstood the whims of time, while accruing the historical content of Harvard Square’s distinguished past.

Survivors of sexual assault are speaking out about their experiences, and are demanding change and justice. According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, approximately 11 percent of all college students will experience physical or sexual assault on campus. Lesley University junior Katya Zinn is taking the issue of combating on-campus sexual assault into her own hands.

Jose Mateo Ballet presents the 10th Annual Dance for World Community

Celebrate the diversity of Cambridge through dance. Follow me as I explore what it means to be a part of a dance community.

Dance'n Feet

I am a lifelong dancer and resident of Cambridge for 17 years. I have been lucky to be a part of some amazing dance communities. For me, the word community means family. The best dance teachers create a family of dancers. Most dancers will spend months of hard work and sweat on a routine. What we get out of it is friendship, and the excitement to perform for the festival.

Mosquitos!!! Bzzzzzzing...stingggg.....SMACK!

Mosquito Bite and Population Control for Comfort and Health

Oh, how the warm spring weather lures us into the great outdoors! We are drawn to the woods, to the aromatic blooming [bzzzzsssning, smack! Sorry for the interruption] of the deep outdoors, or to the evening hanging out on a porch [bzzzzzing – smack! Sorry, again! For the interruption!] with friends. So warm…so peaceful! So greatly free of winter’s constrictions and burdens. So comforted by the long, long days. So…so…beset.
