I was glad to see that my mom wasn't the only one putting gloves and mittens up to dry at the end of a busy day. After taking in the Portland Museum of Art Biennial yesterday afternoon, we ventured down to a few of the wharfs off Commercial Street and caught a glimpse of the working waterfront at rest. Back in another life, late winter afternoons usually found the big radiators in the den on Stevens Avenue fully stocked with a myriad of colors, shapes and sizes, as our 'working' gloves, mittens and socks stumbled upon a bit tranquility after a hectic winter day. Luckily, there were lots of the big radiators, because with four kids, there were lots clothes that needed a 'rest'.
