Graffiti Alley at Cambridge, MA

Graffiti Alley can be easily missed by the casual passerby. It connects Massachusetts Avenue to a parking lot near Central station between Harvard and MIT.

It invites anyone to express their emotions in spray paint form, and indeed artists of all levels come to join in, including well known artists in the Boston area. It is always changing.

“Art is an evolutionary act. The shape of art and its role in society is constantly changing. At no point is art static. There are no rules.”
– Raymond Salvatore Harmon

Regardless of one’s view on graffiti as art, it is quite a colourful, if hidden, spot around Boston and tells a story of its own.

When We Watch Our Chance Pass Us By

We know that each day, each moment, won’t last forever
Everything is fleeting
And that’s what makes it beautiful
And difficult

When we can’t hold in our hands what’s dear to us
It’s an endless bottomless emptiness
What is gone we wish
Would come back

Even as a blur, a shadow
A hint of what was
Or could have been
That single chance lost.
