Open Studios

I was sitting on my porch grading papers on this lovely day and wondering why the hell so many people were strolling down our street. It’s a residential street behind Davis Square, all houses, no shops, not really the place for random strolling trips. Then I walked around the corner to Store24 and noticed many houses with orange balloons tied to their porches. Then I realized today is Somerville Open Studios. Apparently we have several artists living on our street, several orange balloon bunches floating in the breeze here. So that explains the spike in street traffic. Sad, though, that I know so little about my neighbors.
