Something brightened my day one rainy fall afternoon on my first trip to a charming place called Boston. Although there was a bit of hemming and hawing while planning the long haul ( 20 hours!!!), stumbling upon things like these can make me forget about the fatigue and slight weather-related mood swings (even for just a bit).
Just a few days before the surprise and severe snowstorm battered the East coast late October (not the best way to introduce snow to me for the first time, I tell you), my husband took me on a stroll around the parks and brought me to Copley Square.
And there we met the bronze sculpture created by Nancy Schon: “Hare And Tortoise” — a witty and wonderfully creative tribute to all runners who attend the Boston Marathon flying in from all over.
Dedicated to one of the world’s oldest foot races, celebrates winning by virtue of perseverance, focus… and wit.
