Just for a few minutes



My husband works nights

and I work days.

We both take public transportation into the city which is fairly easy, affordable and mostly dependable.


but it leaves very little time for us to be together.

So…Joe has taken to meeting me in the little park just outside my building. When I get out of work I cross the street and there he is, sitting on a park bench with his ear buds in,  listening to music while he waits for me.

We sit together for a few minutes exchanging the nuances of our days

and then we jump on the blue line -he gets off at State Street to catch the orange line that takes him to work and I continue on to Wonderland where I catch a bus that brings me home.

It’s only about 15 or 20 minutes together….but it’s my favorite quarter hour of the day.
