Photo Wednesday 22: the infinite corridor

On Sunday morning we went to the kids’ favorite playground and then, on a whim, decided to go walk around MIT.

As we drove over the bridge from Boston to Cambridge, I told the kids that we were going to see the “infinite corridor,” which is what the central hall in the main building is called.  We didn’t know where we were going exactly, so after we parked we did some wandering.  Grace kept asking “is this the infinite corridor?  Is this it?”

Finally, in exasperation, I said, “This is what we came to see.  The point is this walking around.  The journey.  Not the destination.  Be here.”

Matt rolled his eyes at me, but I meant it.

    Great picture. And I love how each of you reacted to the same event…I think our family comments (and eye rolls!) would have been similar!

    I dated an MIT student for a time…and that corridor was one of our favorite places to walk through if I remember correctly 🙂 it looks much smaller when empty…
