Sayonara Summer

Grab those Last Selfies for the Season

Labor Day...the final frontier before we put away the mementos of summer. 

Whether it be a final visit to the beach, back yard BBQs (hint hint), or catching the latest movie blockbuster, Labor Day is sort of the last Hoorah before returning to school or the routine of work.

For many in the Cambridge area (i.e.. students), summer means returning home to catch a breather from university studies. 

Hence, the real experience of a Cambridge summer is always missed.

Cambridge has over 300 public artworks all across the city. I've enjoyed them for years without ever really thinking about who takes care of them, so I decided to find out more.

Turning a New Page on Summer Reading

Cambridge Public Schools encourage reading with summer reading program

“Read to the moon and back” is the slogan of this year’s Cambridge Public Schools (CPS) summer reading season. CPS has challenged students in grades kindergarten through eighth to read 20 minutes per day to help reach the goal of half a million minutes of reading per grade level. 

“If minutes = miles, we’ll read to the moon and back this summer!” their website states.

A once-busy rail yard in East Cambridge lies largely desolate. Use it for transportation? Or development?




A hundred years ago, there was a huge bustling railroad yard in the area of Somerville, East Cambridge and Charlestown covering hundred of acres. It was separate from the residential and industrial areas we know as East Cambridge and was the sole land use in the extreme northeast corner of Cambridge. Then, as now, it was seen as separate from East Cambridge.

My interviewee was late to the Winthrop Square Park in Harvard Square, so I took up conversation with a busking musician. The conversation turned to the omnipresent topic du jour: the over-development and massive landscape changes in Cambridge, and the loss of longstanding, beloved businesses.

Kemp Harris is a local musician who has lived in Cambridge since 1978. He has an extensive bio that includes: acting, composing, teaching, and writing. We had a long conversation, which included all the hot button issues locally and nationally: over-development, gentrification, and racism in America, but it is the music and artfulness of Harris that I chose to focus on.
