This Way to Providence

Pictures? They are sometimes better than words. At least, that's what I'm going to assume for now, for tonight, for this magical moment when I have so much to say and yet am thwarted by that adversary called "work that needs to be done sooner than never."

But first, a quick preface. This weekend, I visited Providence, Rhode Island, for the first time in my life, and loved it a lot. The nice thing about Providence is that distills my favorite aspects of Boston and Cambridge into a beautiful, meandering, compact town. There are cafes. There are bookstores. There are stores of miscellany, old and new, and bright clapboard buildings lining wide-sidewalked streets. It is a sweet shadow world, just an hour and a half away by commuter rail.

I have a feeling you should think about visiting, sometime.
