There were also large ice works of a lighthouse, clipper ship and sea serpent (live sculpting work in progress while we were there)
Across the street a favorite spot with more public art and large crowds– the ever stunning Boston Public Library. An art post for another day: for now some interior details. Here are a Kitson marble bust of Longfellow and a tease detail from the Sargent murals. (My sons said they like the Sawyer Free teen room more but this Boston Library was something to be proud of, too.)
My 8 year old granddaughter presented me with a little booklet she entitled “A Gift of Poetry” which contains 7 of her original poems. Shanti is a voracious reader and a talented writer. She keeps a detailed journal and loves to listen to, write and tell stories. More than anything, she loves the idea of family.
Here’s one of her poems.
As most know I love taking the sunsets over Magnolia Harbor. The other night it was so clear you can name the buildings of Boston’s skyline. Happy New Year

Sam and Christina phoned in with us!
Happy New Year folks!
We will miss you Life is Good, thank you for the last 12 1/2 years.
Yesterday I looked outside my office window and there was a snow squall….5 minutes later it was blue skies again! Gotta love New England weather!
