 Friday night, patio time ....

... and someone, today it seems, knocked down the empty warehouse behind my place that, until today, obscured the South Boston Waterfront from view

The good news:  no more brick smokestack as the focal point of my backyard.

The bad news:  12-unit condo building in my backyard, under construction until the spring of 2011.

The OK news:  the someone who did the knocking down hasn't started putting up new walls yet.  Which means until then, on nights like tonight when a jacket isn't necessary and the sky is a little purple from lights shining through humidity and it doesn't seem that certain life frustrations will ever be solved, it somehow helps to have a unexpectedly wider horizon at which to stare.

@Karin. Yes, enjoyed a similar night tonight on my porch. Hope the condo building takes a while.
