A Sad Day in the Beantown Hub

Actually, it isn't a sad day. It is a glorious lovely day.

I just have had that phrase stuck in my mind from about 20 years. It comes from when the first African American ran for mayor of Boston lost to, I believe, Kevin White. His first comment was "it's a sad day in the Beantown Hub." Or maybe I have completely made that up.

In any case, today is the last day of Unconditional Yes. I will be sitting in my living room from noon to 4 p.m. and then we will have a little closing party. The Simmons Choir is coming back for an encore performance.

Do you think I will be able to document this? Guess what I forgot to pack yesterday morning at 6 a.m.?

It's a sad day in the Beantown Hub for forgetful artists.

ETA:

The first African American to run for mayor of Boston was Mel King in 1983. He ran against Ray Flynn, not Kevin White.

you can buy a disposable camera (i know, i know such a waste!) and then get a cd of all the images..

of course there is no preview, and it cost so much more.. (last year i got rechargeable batteries for my digital camera, and i can't believe the savings!) Or ask your mom! (mom's alway fill in, in the pinch!)
