Photo by myself on Canal Street.
Buying and selling go on til the wee hours in this neighborhood, where many people come in search of a bargain.
Late on a Sunday night, a jewelry store was still open. Sidewalk hawkers sold their wares under lights connected to generators. People milled about in the cold night air.
I had absolutely zero time to myself in Boston this weekend, so I don't have any photos to show of that lovely city. (Argh!!) My mom and I were there visiting my grandfather, who is a whopping 98 years old.
He's doing well, newly located in a nursing home, because he can no longer care for himself. It's a big change for him, but he's relatively healthy and in good spirits. Mom and I took him out to lunch, where he ate tremendous amounts of food. May we all live to that age and be so spirited!
I have to say that visiting the nursing home put life in perspective - we are fortunate to have our health and freedom while we do.
