The 5th goddess stands in the mud amongst the reeds lining the Muddy River, Brookline. Bikers, dogs and their people, runners, walkers, strollers, lovers, medical workers, leaf blowers and grass cutters, students, parents and toddlers pass close by. She says, "May our hearts be flooded with forgiveness. Washing away all anger and aversion. Leaving space for love and compassion to overflow."

I first thought to put her on the Highline . . . a beautiful wild garden that has been created on an old elevated railroad siding downtown on the west side near the Hudson River . . .but it was way too carefully cultivated, populated and patrolled for comfort . . .
The park at Union Square had more of the feel of real people, and a more casual feel that comes from having been a real part of the city for some time. Around her are a great mix of street people, well-heeled consumers at the farmer's market, construction workers, and artists . . .
