Ken with Minuteman Statue on Battle Green, Lexington, Massachusetts, 26 December 2011

It’s the day after Christmas, and everyone is either extremely mellow, or they are frantically shopping for after Christmas deals.  It seemed to be a holiday for just about everyone, and I took the opportunity to clean up some things around the house, do some paperwork, and then I set outside to do some errands and do some writing.

I’m the type of person that I need to get out of the house to get something done that takes a lot of focused time.  I tend to go to the library to do a lot of writing or organizing.  As today was an official holiday for most municipalities, I decided to go to Starbucks, and in wanting to utilize my time well with this challenge, I headed off to Lexington to sit in a Starbucks and get some writing done.

As most of you know, Lexington is famous for the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775 and (along with the Battle of Concord) starting the American Revolution.  Lexington now is a pretty affluent suburb of Boston, but with a nice town center and many historic buildings.  The obvious shot for me was with the Minuteman statue on the Lexington Battle Green.
