The Hub of Five Pets is right here, in my flat; The bed my wife and I share. I’m never far from it, nor are the five pets, and we always make our way back to it. The entire world is spinning in the periphery of The Hub of Five Pets.
It’s where I am right now.
Boston is often referred to as “The Hub,” which is short for “The Hub of the Solar System” and also “The Hub of the Universe.” Oliver Wendell Holmes coined the phrase in 1858.The original “Hub” is actually a physical place: the Massachusetts State House. The reference arrogantly implied that Boston was the center of everything commercial and intellectual at that time.
