Needed to go to Market Street but had to go by way of Albert Square. I'd never been in to the Town Hall, but I had heard that some buddhist monks were doing sacred sand art there this week. Since I had the time, I figured I would check it out. I'm glad I did; it was amazing! They had a pattern laid out on the floor that was probably 8-foot-by-8-foot. Onto the pattern, they were dropping literally GRAINS of colored sand at a time. The effort is so pain-staking, but at the end of the week when it's finished, they are going to destroy it. I guess in their religion, it shows the transitory nature of life. Well worth the time to see.
