at Science Center Plaza at Harvard.

Outside lies magic. Love this art installation titled "Wavelength" near Harvard Yard and the Harvard Science Center. We were certainly in search of cool comfort this August - hottest August on record for the area.

Checking in with Charles

In August, I rediscovered my love for world cinema. At the beginning of the month, I went to the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square on three successive nights to see the Three Colours trilogy (Blue, White, Red). Wonderful to revisit these films. While visiting Berkeley, California, I also had a chance to see La Notte at the Pacific Film Archive.

Very busy real estate month for me, with seven closings. Every move matters. Thrilled for my buyer and seller clients.

I just finished reading Vanessa Van Edward's book Captivate (2017). This book is all about the art and science of connecting with other people. It comes down to listening and taking a genuine interest. This is something I strive to do every day. The aim is always to improve. Remember, I am here to help - and listen - to you!
