Cambridge's Wild Side!

A Wildlife Exploration of the Alewife Brook Reservation.

Eastern Cottontail

Your safari begins just outside the Alewife T station, a stark concrete structure covered in graffiti, next to a noisy highway. You wouldn't believe that another world awaits you on the other side of the station. Bunnies play tag. Mommy duck takes care of her babies. A graceful swan dances a ballet. These are just a few of the 50 species you'll find at the wildlife sanctuary. This place is a photographer's dream. Each day there was something new and exciting to take a photo of.

Interview with a Cambridge Carrot

The Life of a Carrot Destined for Cambridge Curbside Compost, Clean Energy Production

I recently sat down with a Carrot at the Cambridge apartment of Chris and Liz to talk about readying to enter the new city-wide Cambridge Curbside Compost program. Please note: This interview took place the night before Carrot was picked up at curbside, and two – TWO! - days – DAYS!

Cambridge Comforts

Places and spaces for we who are alive and sometimes miserable

The word "Stress" in red capital letters, with many darkened cartoon hands rising up from word.

Isn’t comfort the last thing you think about as you move through your sometimes harsh day? As people bump and squish you on the T? As worry sets in about being late? As your boss puts you in your place and you’d like to grab them by that little piece of vertical flesh between their nostrils (it’s called a columella), pull them to you and scream, “I am not your bread machine!!”?

Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

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.
