This is the Cambridge I know. When I go outside, I pass by this massive Siberian Elm on Massachusetts Avenue several times a week. I marvel at its size and notice how it is always changing. A day after the February winter storm, I took the top photo, a commemoration of the tree’s grandeur in snow. This week, I returned to the tree again – some fixture of calm and continuity in this week’s storm.

Right now I’m inside in lock-down mode as one of the suspects from the Boston Marathon explosions is being pursued. Overnight, the sounds of sirens and helicopters filled my apartment near Central Square. This morning, I woke to news of what unfolded overnight, and continues now.

May things renew again with time.
