Copley Square

I had a whole bunch of ideas for posts in the cue.I was going to write something about wearing an old pink oxford to paint the kids' bedroom, or the vagaries of wearing pleated pants with a button down collar. But then somebody decided to make some kind of point by killing a small child, among others, and blowing a bunch of peoples legs off, and I just couldn't be bothered much to care how I or anyone else was dressed. I have called Boston my home all my life, and I'm a little raw over what happened at the Marathon yesterday. Give me a few days, I'll be back soon.

Not to mention that you worked right around the corner at Simon's. I went to Newman Prep for high school and I also worked on Newbury for a couple years.

As the only person I even tangentially know in Boston, I am glad that you and yours are all right.

I can only imagine what you're going through, old friend. You, your family and friends, and the rest of Boston are in my thoughts and prayers.

My heart goes out to you Boston, and those with lost or injured love ones.

A horrible act of violence, but what a testament to the people of Boston in how they responded to this tragedy. People all around the world are praying for, and supporting Bostonians.

Yes. These people behind this are lower than a snake's belly in a wagon rut.

I just discovered your blog last week, yet I've been checking it periodically to make sure you are OK. My thoughts are with you and Boston.

Your post is an excellent reminder about the importance of keeping things in perspective. Keep up the good work on all fronts!
