WWC – The Road Taken/Surprise!

The theme of the week: Show us something that surprised or delighted you on “the road taken.”

It was a lovely day in Boston, still early summer of 2015 and everyone was out and glad to be enjoying the great weather. The Janet Echelman installation on the Greenway was showing and it was wonderful to see.  I was in my own little bubble taking pictures when suddenly I was photo bombed by a young woman I did not know and it took me quite by surprise!  She was so funny we couldn’t stop laughing!  I never even got her name but she made my day even better than it already was!

“As If It Were Already Here”

Artist, Janet Echelman has given us all a splendid, uplifting gift to all of us who live in and around Boston:

“Here in Boston, I’m excited to visually knit together the fabric of the city with art,” said Echelman. “The creation of the Greenway was a seminal event in the unfolding of our city, so I’m delighted and humbled to be a part of its transformation into a vibrant cultural destination.” 

Her website is well worth a visit on this holiday!   AS IF IT WERE ALREADY HERE, BOSTON, MA, 2015

I so enjoyed my visit to The Greenway when I finally found it and hope some of you can get there to see it in person – it’s very exciting to see.
