Love to Boston

“The heart of the world beats under the three hills of Boston.”

-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

The tragic explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line yesterday hit close to home. While I was far away in Virginia, my memory of crossing that finish line 3 years ago remains close to my heart. 

Glued to the news yesterday, I watched the explosions over and over in shock and horror. Last night, the explosions filled my dream content. This morning, I decided to dig up my favorite pictures of Boston to remind me of the beautiful city I love so dearly. Love to Boston and all those affected by yesterday’s tragic events.

    Hi Julie,

    when I heard of the attack at the Boston Marathon, I thought of you and your website, because you were there runnig some years ago. I read that when I found Your website in search of informations on narcolepsy (I have narcolepsy since 2008).

    To find sensible words in the face of such unreasonable acts as the attack is hardly possible. To show some nice pictures of Bosten was a good idea.

    On this occasion I would like to tell you and your readers: the way you describe aspects of narcolepsy in your words – that is worth reading.

    Friendly greetings from Germany

    I thought of you too, Julie, when I heard about the tragedy. I thought there might be a chance that you were there! I am relieved that you are safe, and my heart is broken for the people of Boston!
