Boston’s MBTA (subway) may have lost a longtime customer this weekend. A near-daily rider for half a decade, and one peeved recently with unexplained 8:00am station closures on ten-degree days, extended on-train delays within sight of an empty platform and all other manner of miscellaneous minor grievances.

But it turns out everything in Boston just isn’t that far away. The closest I get to being stressed while walking are my own grumblings about inferior footwear that soak to the bone at the mere hint of humidity (or giant slush puddles… but really what’s the difference). New streets seen, once-foreign neighborhoods transversed, a sweet sleep-motivating muscular fatigue.

And so new shoes/boots will be had. Man made durable goods to trudge above, with. Through the whirling night in blanketed-snow silence, high banks lit only by the red lights ahead.
