The view from (near) my window.
I spent the day in a magazine staff retreat — away from my room with a view — which means that I didn't face the temptation of standing up every minute or two to peek outside at the media vans (shown here in a Boston Globe photo that must have been taken from the balcony above my office) or the crowds that have spent the day waving flags and holding signs and alternating choruses of "Amazing Grace" and "My Country Tis of Thee." At lunch, however, I did walk up and down the block to read the signs and shake some hands. The turnout seemed smaller than yesterday's rally, but the anti-gay marriage crowd had clearly set up camp near the State House entrance and the pro-gay marriage crowd had camped directly in front of the State House steps (which, since 9/11, have ceased to be a public entrance). Now that I have time to catch up on the day's news, I'll be reading the Boston Phoenix Massachusetts Constitutional Convention blog. Let the nail-biting begin!
