To sit in that spacious setting on Strong Avenue in Northampton, under those red umbrellas among potted plants with the butterflies and bees flitting about and barriers set up to prevent traffic: It was heavenly. It shifted my whole center of gravity away from the other end of town. It was a little haven of sanity in the asphalt jungle.

And then all of a sudden the seating became much restricted and again the infernal combustion engines took over.

Such a shame!
