Getting Home

One of the first pieces of advice I got as a college student at Simmons--probably from an upperclasswoman--was, if you ever get lost [in Boston] just look for the Citgo sign. From Kenmore Square it was just a walk up Brookline Avenue back home. Fortunately, I never had to use it, I never got lost...

When I found myself driving through Kenmore the other night I felt compelled, as I hadn't before, to stop and take a picture of this Boston icon that was for many years my compass, and now will be part of my window of the world .

Joanne, this is a great reminder of my college days and my walks to and from Kenmore square. I always felt safe knowing the sign was there if ever I needed a guide. Living here in AZ my boys use the mountains to determine the direction they are going-a very different landmark for sure.
