This is another shot of the reflecting pool behind the Monitor offices. To the left is the church and the Monitor. To the right (the tall building, not the shorter ones) is the Monitor’s administration building, where I got my name tag, etc. Employees access it by walking through an intricate labyrinth that weaves beneath the reflecting pool. The two tall buildings in the background are the Prudential Tower (The “Pru”) on the left, which houses a number of shops including Barnes and Nobles, and the John Hancock building on the right.
The thing that’s interesting about the entire Christian Science campus is that people in town really seem to enjoy it. While they could have thrown a fence up around it all, they’ve instead made it open to the public, planning parks and flower gardens, sculptures and exhibits for the pleasure of everyone who visits Boston. At any given moment, tourists and residents can be seen strolling, eating lunch, reading, or even doing yoga along the edge of the pool.
I’m proud to be a part of it. I feel like I belong here in some odd way. It’s like I’ve spent my whole life waiting to come to this place. Don’t mistake me. I would never convert. I’m quite happy with the God I’ve elected to believe in. But as for the Monitor itself… you couldn’t ask for a better place to work. And unlike the other publications put out by the Church, the paper itself upholds a strict non-denominational world view. I like that.
On another note, I’m uploading several pictures, so you may want to check the previous photos as well.
