“Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning. ” — J.M. Barrie Peter Pan

I borrowed someone’s camera lens while at the game on Saturday where the Red Sox faced the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park. This is one of the great shots I was able to get with the lens. I dedicate it to a dear friend who has been very kind in keeping in touch with me, making sure I am okay, and just plain being an awesome support to me week in and week out. Thank you so much. This ones for you.

My friend described the Citgo sign as the North Star of Boston, and cited the above quotation from J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan with regard to the sign. This description and its pairing with literature really brought me to tears when my friend shared it with me in December 2012. The Citgo sign was no more than a Boston icon to me until December. It just goes to show you how different perspectives reap great rewards.  All the more reason to surround one self with inspiring, perceiving, and emotionally aware individuals.
