I’ve been visiting the Assembly area a lot. It’s near my work, the river, the train, and there’s shopping. What more could I possibly want?

Now that it’s getting darker earlier, I’m able to enjoy the lights they have strung up. There lit year-round, but I always seem to miss them when visiting Assembly.


I was putzing around Fanuiel Hall spending money I probably shouldn’t. This tree went up some time back but I’d only seen it partially strung with lights.

The full effect was spectacular. All that effort makes me feel happier, like joy is literally something that can be tasted in the air. It’s a tangible excitement, a sense of wonder thus missing the rest of the year when I’m not surrounded by sparkle and lights.
