We always seem to discover something new on our harbor walks. This installation of Penelope was hidden for many months while the city shored up the walkway. She has been unveiled again. Written along the base, are these words:

Weaving by day, Penelope would be forced to chose a new husband when her tapestry was complete but all the while she waited, unraveling her work by night steadfastly sure of Ulysses return.
Oftentimes I end up unraveling my work at night but it's not about waiting for a love to return, it's about watching t.v. when I'm knitting and not paying enough attention. (I realize with that, I sort of burst the romantic bubble, but hey, this is reality, not a Greek myth!)
