There is so much going on, on the Charles River Esplanade – but that’s only my guess, quiet as it was on that cloudy May Day. On warmer days, the Hatch Cell becomes alive with concerts and plays. There are many sports and playgrounds alongside, and paddling on the river. People are walking and jogging, others play on the lawn. Families and friends share picnics. There is music and laughter and basking in the sun. But, for now, let us enjoy a precious moment of peace, as transient and fragile as those pink cherry blossoms.
