Morning walks – Boston Public Garden

Whew - I am so thankful to have made it through last week. It was one of those crazy, busy put-your-head-down-and-get-it-done kind of weeks. This is the norm for this time of year - I always know it's coming - and yet... and yet.. One morning, as my commuter train pulled into Boston, I pondered - "hmmm, which subway line do I want to take to my office, this morning? orange or green?..." and then came to the conclusion - "NONE - I am NOT getting on the subway, this morning. I can't, I just can't." (Except it wasn't nearly as desperate as I am making it sound). And that was one of my all time best decisions. I walked the three miles to my office - - which took me through the Boston Public Garden - past the the Swan Boats waiting, ready for the tourists that would undoubtedly come an go on this beautiful spring day - past the tulip gardens in full bloom. - through the Back Bay neighborhood and Copley Square, where old meets new and the city comes alive with the start of a new work day. I arrived at my office - amazingly, not much later than usual - clear-headed and ready to start my day. So - as I dashed off one last report on Friday afternoon, receiving the much hoped for email "looks good" - my response back - "awesome - I've got to run" and that is just what I did - getting the heck out of Dodge - escaping the hustle and bustle - heading to Away - where a long, stressful week came to a beautiful end. Got to love it when that happens. So, yeah - only two, maybe three more weeks of put-your-head-down-and-get-it-done-maybe-I-should-just-bring-a-sleeping-bag-to-the-office kind of work ahead, and then... and then... deep breath. It's good to have something to look forward to! Sadly, as I uploaded these photos to my computer, I came to the realization that it is time to retire my once trusty point-and-shoot. I keep it tucked in my bag - always, finding my big girl camera too heavy to carry to work everyday. Sigh. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
