The crowd gathered at the Alewife T station, as instructed. Organizers were identified by umbrellas. While waiting for our group assignments, I struck up a conversation with two lovely gals from Newton named Jess and MJ.

Something to keep an eye out for when you're over by the Prudential Center to break a world record...
Jigsaw puzzles. Perfect for mulling over on a rainy day, maybe by the warmth of a crackling fire. Maybe with a friend or two. Or maybe at one of the city's busiest subway stops with dozens of strangers.
That's right! Piece on Earth is a local organization with a mission:
"Puzzles are both cross-cultural and cross-generational and thus, can serve as a way to bring people together, stimulate conversation, and foster mutual respect between people of all backgrounds and ages. The goodwill that arises out of the unique experience of doing a puzzle with strangers reminds us that we are all, really, just pieces in one giant puzzle."
Setting up (free!) impromptu puzzle sessions, they invite anyone and everyone to come together and join in on the fun. Meet new people, take a break from the hubbub, and put your heads together to put these puzzles together!
This Saturday, December 4th, Piece on Earth will set up outside the Prudential Center on the Boylston Plaza, wearing their Holiday Best and waiting for you to join in on the puzzly fun. In the spirit of the season, they'll also be accepting donations for the Boston Food Bank, so stop on by if you want to help a good cause, or if you just want to dust the old cobwebs out of your noggin and help put the pieces all together. Oh, and of course your own creative holiday garb is encouraged!

I always took issue with the thrown-around phrase, "Beauty is pain." What a silly, dangerous precedent to set! However, I think it brilliant to revise and align one's self to a more accessible mantra: "Beauty is free". But how is this achieved?
Should you find yourself feeling adventurous and willing to allow someone else reign of your make up; then you are in luck. It is always good to take routine, no matter how "harried" and turn it into something new. This adventure had me hair model (read: test subject)... blindly... in salons I had no relationship with and no informed opinion of. See the rest after the break:
