... 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.
