Season 'change'

With the grassy area of the Square still fenced off, the holiday Tree has been relocated to the smaller space immediately in front of the fountain. Lights have yet to be attached.
Despite the colder and wetter weather, the activity around the plaza has continued to be brisk, and the Scooterdude has managed to catch a few ‘waves’ around the Hancock Tower and down Stuart St.

Holiday Greetings go out to all my friends, old and new, such as Officer Dan, Trevor from Melbourne Australia, and Rick from Texas. Enjoyed mugging for the kids with their cameras near the T-stop.

Hope to make an appearance, if not ‘perform’, at First Nite. Will keep y’all posted.

In the meantime, let’s hope the construction in the various corners of the Square is soon completed. (The vapors and fumes have been unavoidable and unpleasant, especially for those of us who exercise or spend more than just a quick passing through the area!)

Now, as the Winter approaches, I feel that I can begin to work on some real skills!
As I told the market-tender who was out late selling some great fresh local produce (and there’s only a couple more weeks of the Copley Square market!)
“I’m just getting started.”
Or, as I told a group of skateboarders, “It’s the Winter that really proves this sport! I’m out here in January, February and March, when the ice and snow fill in the cracks and cover the rough bumps and the wind is fierce and ferocious and I get the best rides ever! Look for me then!”

And, to the Peace Vigil group, friendly and loyal to their cause, I offered, “I’m just a moving Christmas Tree with all these lights.” We all laugh and continue our respective witness to the Truth.
