Cambridge Comforts

Places and spaces for we who are alive and sometimes miserable

The word "Stress" in red capital letters, with many darkened cartoon hands rising up from word.

Isn’t comfort the last thing you think about as you move through your sometimes harsh day? As people bump and squish you on the T? As worry sets in about being late? As your boss puts you in your place and you’d like to grab them by that little piece of vertical flesh between their nostrils (it’s called a columella), pull them to you and scream, “I am not your bread machine!!”?

"Prepare for an Emergency?...uh...

N'haw! That's okay, thanks. I'm all set."

"Note to self: Think about maybe getting more of these." Image of battery.

(Author’s Note: THIS ARTICLE IS NOT ABOUT HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN EMERGENCY IN CAMBRIDGE.)

When you think about emergency preparedness, what comes to mind? Jugs of water in your closet? Cans of beans stacked in your kitchen cabinet? A battery-powered radio and flashlights, with extra batteries? A decent, basic first aid kit? Some single-use hand warmers? A heavy coat, in case it’s cold and the heat goes out?

Honoring Harriet A. Jacobs (1813-1897); Abolitionist, Author, Women's Rights Advocate

2018 Women's History Month Walking Tour honors ten notable women memorialized at Mount Auburn Cemetery, including Harriet A. Jacobs

It seems fitting today, April 3, as we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and mourn the ongoing racial and economic injustice against which he fought, to also honor Harriet A. Jacobs (1813-1897) - abolitionist, author, and women’s rights advocate - who lived in Cambridge for part of her life.
