You’re probably not old enough to remember a song by this name, recorded by the band Chicago in the 1970’s. But it became a number one hit and an anthem of summer for an entire generation.
And that’s what came to my mind when I took these photos a few Saturdays ago in Boston.
A runner stretches in the shadow of a statue honoring our beloved Arthur Fiedler, conductor of the Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra from 1930 to 1979.
This man was thoroughly enjoying both his stogie and the birds that came for his treats.
Meanwhile, a patient squirrel watched the Bird Feeder from nearby, awaiting an opportunity to scavenge for leftovers.
Springtime colors across the pond.
People reaching, people touching
A real celebration…
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
For the day
