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