Harvard's Hundred Acre Wood

Over the past 20 or so years, Cambridge has been home to two different Pooh trees. The house next to the Science Center seems to be the oldest one, having been built sometime in the early 1990s. Its exact origins remain a mystery, but it survived even after the tree that housed it was chopped down in 2012.

Kiss Me, I’m Very Not Irish and Cold and Confused

It’s stupid cold out today, this March morning with the sky frozen cloudless glacier-blue. The bitter wind and whining bagpipes of the Saint Patrick’s Day parade turns my face numb. I’m desperately clutching two slices of pizza, jostled to and fro among the low-slung buildings of South Boston.
