A Tribute to Boston

Weight = 177.4 lbs
Money found = $.25 at a McDonalds drive-thru at 5:30 a.m. on the way to continue the Folsom, LA renovation project.  I asked for the senior discount.  Should have passed on the cinnamon buns.
Statement:  The Bostonians are great walkers.  Mark Twain often took long walks from New England outposts to Boston.  As it is national poetry month, I thought of a poem that helped Ms S and I during Hurricane Katrina.  This link of Wordsworth’s ode is dedicated to the citizens of the city of Boston.  It is printed both on Facebook and the MoneyWalker blog. 
Ode: Intimations, 176-81 by William Wordsworth
What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
  Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
  We will grieve not, rather find
  Strength in what remains behind.
