Sign of the Times

Porter Square

Signs going up...

Cambridge is a city of "squares".  If you're new to the area or a traveler passing through, it might be a challenge finding the "downtown" area of the town.  Once you come to grips with the layout, one can appreciate the culture, attitude, and attributes of the many "squares" of Cambridge.  Of course, Harvard Square has been covered in the media lately because of the perceived extinction of it's smaller traditional "mom & pop" style stores that have been around for close to 100 years.

Veggie Galaxy Serves Vegetarian Varients Of Everyday Dishes

Smack-dab on Massachusetts Avenue lays a vintage style vegetarian diner, Veggie Galaxy, that somehow forgot that people in the '50s ate meat. I decided to eat here to continue my pattern of eating in establishments devoid of meat. I’m still new the idea of meals that aren’t made out of death, and so again I was out of my element.

Jazz Riff
I want to write a poem
the way a jazz man
composes on his feet
sways in rhythm
taps a syncopated beat
I want to howl and growl
to a bottleneck slide
pulse with rage and heat
rap a wild wind run
blast injustice to the gutter

-- Molly Lynn Watt, 2016 Sidewalk Poetry Contest Winner

Unique Store in Inman Square

Walking briskly through Inman Square one cold and windy evening, I came across a new and attractive storefront. Eager to know just what this store was representative of, I looked closer to see if I could catch a glimpse. Unfortunately the store (which by the way, had taken the place of a long standing repair shop) was not open.
