Today - June 17, 2010 - the city of Boston is Green. (SawxBlog Illustration)
Clicking on the shower radio and stepping into the hot stream, I was awash in the sounds of green spewing from the clock-radio speaker, tinny in nature. Interesting.
Then - stepping out of my apartment, the trees on Beacon Street had leaves stiffened at prompt attention, streaming a joyous green into the air - effervescent and infectious in nature. Exhilarating.
Riding the train into work, on the Green line of course, I noticed an abnormal ratio of olive about the train, as my fellow Bostonians acknowledged each other's allegiance, without muttering a word. Faith.
Now, working at my desk, I calmly wait for the day to unfold - and for the green to engulf. For today I am color blind, and there's only one pigmentation I see, and I see it holding a trophy at the end of the night. Joy.
